It was worth facing the chill that had arrived with the cold front yesterday,
and I was rewarded with some relatively good seeing conditions.
The equatorial storm was well seen as a brightish region on the northern edge of the equatorial belt,left of the CM,
and I have measured it at System 1 Longitude of 122deg and a latitude of +6-7 deg.
It was most obvious in the red channel and I have included an enhanced R image in the RGB image,
which gives a possible indication of some structure in the storm.
The storm is also noticeable in the IR capture.
