About this image

I am drawn to the dynamic storms and moons of distant Jupiter.  Alas Jupiter's low declination for the past few years have prevented me from observing this fascinating world (other than a club trip to Tenerife in 2018). 

An early start on Saturday morning allowed me to catch this planet against the blue sky while listening to the deafening dawn chorus.  A real pleasure to have Jupiter back again, albeit low and against a blue sky.  Unfortunately no details visible, other than the principal storm belts and Io & Ganymede.
