There is currently some interest as two,relatively new,
small white ovals(named A5a and A5b by Marco Vedovato of the Jupos team) in the SSTC region are approaching each other,
and the question is whether they will interact and possibly merge.
Seeing was a bit soft,but I managed to capture the current situation this morning in IR.
I note the 3 bright NEB spots in the 6 March image. The A5a and A5b ovals are not resolved in the RGB.

Reasonable seeing night and a lot of trepidation due to the wind even so enough fine details visible.
GRS well defined with some details inside,oval BA tending to become a GRS mini with colored getting more and more accented.
Many details in the north belt that is much darker than the south.

Here is an image from March 7th. The GRS is headed off with lots of
turbulence following. The NNTZ LRS stands out with its dark rim.
