Saturn Storm 20th Jan 2011


Recommended Posts


Here is another drawing of Saturn. This is from this morning, Thursday 20th Jan.

I observed from 05:15 to 07:45, and watched the storm transit the disc. The seeing was okay but not anything special. Ant III, with brief better spells.

My best view of the storm was at 06:30 when the brightest part was near the centre of the disc. At this time it appeared as a bright white horizontal strip with a crisp edge, and perhaps a tiny amount of very pale blue within it.

The NtrZ proceeding it was pale and bright. Following it, the zone was its usual dull yellowy colour.

Still I have not seen the kind of detail visible in some webcam images, and I think excellent seeing must be required for this.
