It's been a cloudy,wet May here.  We had some clear skies and reasonably
fair seeing over the weekend,so here's Saturn on May 20.

Despite an extended period of good weather in late May it brought only one night of good seeing on which this image was taken. Again various small spots across the disk are apparent at various latitudes.

The first two "R" & RGB data sets show the dark spot on the Southern edge of the great storm remnant very well, it seems very concentrated and almost black. There is also a quite distinct white spot in the NEB in the "R" & RGB but the most interesting thing is the white spot still remaining at the latitude where the earlier SED's outburst occurred and shows up near the CM of the RGB from 10:50 UTC.
