Clyde Foster
Up early to try and catch the STZ outbreak,which was imaged by A Wesley and P Miles on 4 Feb
and which is just past the CM in the attached image.
Captured nearly 50Gb of data,but very poor seeing and lower altitude made most of it unusable.
I captured RGB(all poor,although the outbreak could be seen in the best R images),685nm,742nm and CH4.
This was the best I could get(>685nm),and it appears that there may be two brightish spots at the outbreak.
I captured rather poor CH4 data,but due to the interest in the outbreak,attached are the two results that I got.
Other than the outbreak,I find the NEB wave formation amazing.

Some IR742 images from this morning. Lucky to get anything as it only cleared toward dawn.
Seeing poor but the IR filter helped.
The bright STB outbreak spot has become sheared into a streak.

IR image of Jupiter from this morning,taken just a couple of minutes before sunrise.
Oval BA is visible at bottom,just past centre.
There's an interesting dark spot on it's left side,
and what seems to be a chain of dark spots leading away to the left.
A bit further left we can see the white streaks resulting
from the convective storm outbreak that started just over a day ago.


one more image of Jupiter this morning,using a methane absorption filter to show cloud heights.
This allows us to see how the STrD outbreak has changed since yesterday.
Oval BA is the bright feature just right of centre,
and the STrD outbreak can be seen to its left closer to the limb.
The single bright core can still be seen but there are also two fainter spots either side.

Condition was terrible this morning. Seeing was unstable and I could only salvage a few data.
I was fortunate to capture the STB outbreak that was first imaged by Damian Peach and Anthony Wesley
and noticed by John Rogers.  The outbreak can be seen setting on the right and it is very elongated.
It is very prominent in IR and can be seen in CH4 band.
The CH4 band brightness is not as bright as when it first appeared.
But the area preceding this outbreak is very dark in CH4 band!
The SEB is quiet in this region.  Io's shadow is on the NEB and note the wave pattern on the NEB.
