Visibility III / V
When I woke up in the early morning today, I saw a bright "star" in the brightening morning southern sky, which turned out to be Jupiter when viewed through my Newton-style reflecting telescope. I looked at that planet for a while through my telescope and I also saw through my telescope two so-called Galilean moon. Jupiter itself was bright and clear, but I could not make out the details of its cloud bands. I took a couple of pictures of the object with my iPhone 8 smartphone, which I believe also show illuminating night clouds, so does the observation actually belong to the cloud category? This time I didn't take any pictures of Jupiter itself through my telescope.
