Jupiter in 2022-23: Report no.4

–John Rogers & Shinji Mizumoto

Soon after Report no.3 was posted, it became evident that there was more to show and tell about the topics therein, so here is an update.  Illustrations include maps in visible and infrared wavebands; v-hi-res images; and double transits of Europa and Ganymede.  Topics covered include the NEB, GRS, and STB, and the reason why the recent opposition of Jupiter was the closest for many decades.

The full-size figures are here:   Report-no4_Figures
