A very detailed photo of Jupiter with a close up on the GRS. Interesting to notice the clouds that are circling around you, but the most notable is to see how it flattened.
 According to John Rogers, as you all know, the GRS region is of special interest at present with the remarkable dark band that is streaming around it, and more retrograding rings approaching on the SEBs. Hi-res images of this region in both RGB and CH4, as often as possible, will be very valuable over the next few weeks.  Clyde Foster and Shinji Mizumoto are particularly following these features, and they point out that an especially large retrograding ring is approaching the GRS.  It should arrive about a week from now -- if it does not slow down or stop, as these large rings often do.

Great images and very interesting dark band around the GRS. Perhaps this flow pattern is now possible with a smaller GRS?
