    My observations on Jupiter were confirmed by a photo posted be Corpusse. In his thread title, he mentions Ganymede's shadow on the planet. The GRS was right next to it, and north of the GRS a thin band is visible roughly where the large south equatorial band used to be. Could that be a sign that the large band is forming again, or has that thin band always been there?

    Great report, had a great view of Jupiter last night, didnt feel like hauling the scope so I just used my binoculars, still amazing, though weather permitting, i would like to focus just on Jupiter and its moons.

    Wait, I heard something not too long ago about a band disappearing. Was it the southern equatorial? If so, that would explain why I had trouble seeing it last night. In most pictures it's the second darkest next to the nothern eq band.

    Yeah, the second large band has been gone for a month or so. Jupiter looks sort of naked without it. The band had disappeared before and then came back, so that's why it's intriguing to find out what is there at this point. You never know (if and) when it will reform.

    Great report! I really like reading these reports, as it gives me new ideas on things to look for. Since I am still extremely new, reports like this prove to me that there is an infinite amount of things to view! Very exciting.

    Oops, you might be in trouble for necro-posting, omeek. That was a 4 year old thread. Better to respond to newer stuff...
