Jupiter - 6.10.2022 at 23.10 Nakkila Observation number 109818

Visibility IV / V

Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

Visual observation/drawing of Jupiter at night 6/7/10/2022. The northern equatorial belt appears to be clearly darker than its southern counterpart. In the end, seeing was OK, the details stood out quite nicely. Using a yellow filter. The strong wind caused the pipe to vibrate, which hindered detection somewhat.
