Best times to see Jupiter's Great Red Spot


Recommended Posts

The following article on the BAA website lists some of the times when the GRS may be best viewed over the next few weeks: https://www.britastro.org/node/9788

The article also includes some advice on using colour filters to observer Jupiter visually.

A more detailed article of using colour filters on the planets, taken from a recent edition of the BAA Journal, can be seen at: https://britastro.org/journal_item/9415

I hope you find these items useful. The BAA is always keen to help observers get the most out of their hobby.

Thanks for the useful BAA links :icon_biggrin:

I use the Cartes Du Ciel software and also the Virtual Planet Atlas, both by the same author and freeware. They seem to get the placement of the GRS very accurately :icon_biggrin:
