Neptune Image 2016/11/23(UT)

These images reveal a Bright White Complex (storm spot) in both images...they are used in the animated gif included also to clearly reveal the motion during Neptune's rotation...
Because Neptune's elevation is compromised by the time it is dark enough to image the chances of catching these BWC's will become increasingly more difficult in the next few weeks & then become well-nigh impossible by year's end, even though conjunction does not occur until early March 2017...
