Seeing very poor, and then heavy "freezing fog" moved in at about 03:00
1st image , Poor conditions with heavy fog. Note apparent growth E-W
of oval BA and its position relative to the GRS; also note the expansion
"swelling" at the NEB points immediately W. of the CM. Improved delineation
of the SSTB near CM.
2nd image , seeing unimproved with heavy frost.
Poor conditions with frost. Note the incredible dark gray irregularly
shaped "cloud" in the NEZ immediately w. of the CM as well as the large
elongated yellowish oval fol. that. A wonderful northward lateral shift of
the southern components of the NEB. Note the PINK nature of oval BA and its
greatly expanded size and definition.
3rd image , / CCD - Conditions poor with fog. Compare this CCD image
with that of 2nd image and note the fine and turbulent detail within
the NEZ and that following the oval BA. The increase in both the size and
overall "clarity" in brightness of oval BA is evident in this image.

Attached to this, and other two messages, are Jupiter images obtained on
Feb 15, 10 and 08. Some more sessions obtained in Feb are still to be
As it is shown in the most recent images, BA and GRS continue to be two
distinct structures in the visible, IR and methane band. In the methane
band, BA continues to ba smaller than in IR and visible light.
