    Very good night of seeing, several interesting photos of Jupiter. If it did not have a very strong wind, and it was not just a C8 it had captured wonderful details!

    Yes, 71º altitude from the horizon. Jupiter is drifting south and I am at -30ºS.

    @Avani: The detail in the image is very impressive.

    @Sophie: Thank you for the link to the article. Just looking at the orbits I can't help but wonder if at one time Jupiter had beautiful rings like Saturn, but they started forming into moons earlier. Maybe in a few million years those small moons will combine to form larger moons. Fascinating to think about.
