    Default Jupiter Great Red Spot Changes GRS Photos

    What's up at Jupiter's GRS? There may be something brewing up over from that end as reported by John:

    J. Nassr/Stardust Observatory

    Seeing tonight was a little better than usual and allowed me to coax finer details from Jupiter. A new small red spot seems to have emerged to the lower right side of the GRS. It seems to have migrated from almost adjacent to the lower right side of the GRS in Chris Go's image taken two nights ago. Could it be related to the recent SEB outbreak revival? A rather prominent blue streak to the upper right of the GRS is also a note worthy feature.
    In Chris' image the other night, the small red spot seemed to be welded to the bottom right edge of the GRS, and now it has drifted apart as shown above. The blue streak at 2 o'clock position from the GRS also seemed to have grown compared to that from previous images. Whether or not they are connected to the on-going SEB revival is anybody's guess, but surely these are very interesting developments worth watching out for!
