Four views of Jupiter, spanning nearly four hours. North is up and the East and West are
reversed. Notice the trail of white ovals following the great Red Spot (GRS) in the South
Equatorial Band (SEB) in the first three sketches. Also notice the long festoons streaming
out of the NEB into the EZ in the first sketch.
Reddish-brown bars are visible in NEB in the final sketch, as is a large white area,
almost a split in the SEB. These sketches were made at Fremont Peak, near the observatory
on August 23rd and 24th, 1998. It was the night and morning after the annual FPOA
Star-B-Que. Thanks to Rich Neushaefer for the views through his 7 inch 180mm refractor
and Zeiss binoviewer and Zeiss barlow using his Zeiss Abbe 10 and 16mm eyepieces.
Did I mention they were Zeiss? Shortly after these sketches were made, Mojo and I left
for the Longhouse diner in Gilroy for breakfast. 17 months later we were married! =)
