A shaky glimpse of Jupiter
Seeing conditions were unstable. Final result is poor compared to previous occasions.
Starting from the North (top):
A small number of white ovals are visible within the NNTZ and NPR.
Two major prominent dark ovals are observed in the NEB. Upper edge of NEB shows continuous swirling pattern overlapping in NTropZ.
The EZ looks quite complex, with a prominent festoon on the F side of the CM.
The SEB texture is very rich, with no conspicuous white ovals. A dark oval is seen on the F side of the CM.
?JrGRS in STZ near CM.
See reference guide for Jupiter surface nomenclature.
