About this image

Getting up early to observe the largest planet in the solar system is always a pleasure – even if the alarm goes off at 0300. The seeing was pretty good despite the big fella's low altitude, the morning mist and the brightening sky so we could see:

·        Great Red Spot exiting stage left

·        Shadow of Jupiter’s moon Europa entering stage right – Europa itself is out of field of view

·        2 dark barges in North Equatorial Band (NEB)

·        NEB itself darker with darker central band

·        Southern Equatorial Band (SEB) pale.
