Jupiter through a hazy atmosphere

The early morning sky on August 18th was somewhat hazy, possibly due to high level thin cirrus clouds veiling the low eastern skies.

However, the RGB frames captures still show a moderate amount of detail to compose a full colour projection from the South and North Pole. The NEB and NTB are still chaotic, the latter showing prominent bluish festoons being projecting and deviating (because of Coriolis) towards the North N temperate Belt.

The Equatorial Belt seems to have widened a little bit since my previous observation made on the 4th.

Two white ovals at the South S Temperate Belt are still conspicuous.

This observation has been reported to ALPO database.
