Condition was variable today but with periods of good seeing.
Humidity was a bit high which made imaging a challenge. However,these are some of my best images this season.
The GRS is well resolved. Two small ovals can be seen INSIDE the GRS.
In the methane band,there is a dark arc inside the GRS along with a very bright area in the middle.
The STrD is still pushing towards the GRS.
The small dark feature following the STrD is moving closer to the GRS! The wake of the GRS is very turbulent.
The South Polar Red Sot is prominent.
There is a bright rift on the NEB but this feature is not bright in methane band.
However there are two bright plumes in methane band at the EZn/NEBs border that seems to be pushing close to each other.
Will these merge? These two bright plumes are not very clear in the color image because of the EZ festoons.

Very poor seeing again unfortunately so only a single near IR result.
