Conditions were good tonight, around sunset.  Here is Jupiter taken in late-twilight showing the GRS transiting the facing hemisphere.  Regular watchers of Jupiter will note that while the Northern Equatorial band doesn’t show much expansion in this area, the North Temperate Band appears to be expanding, thus squeezing the Northern Tropical Zone.
