The seeing was exceptionally good for this capture. This means that a lot of fine detail has come through,
probably at the optical limit of the C14.
The polar areas are well resolved and the South Polar Region (SPR) shows two interesting light coloured patches.
The Red Spot Hollow (RSH) has a distinct green hue and there is an interesting red stream bleeding into it from the northern part of the GRS.
The South Equatorial Belt south (SEBs) has a distinctly dark maroon coloured stream which looks to be splitting around the GRS.
This has thickened and intensified in colour,particularly around the GRS in the last week.
In the white South Tropical Zone to the left of the GRS in this image,
there are rows of fine blue/ pink structure which seems to occasionally resolve into small round oval eddies.
In the North Equatorial Belt north (NEBn) there are a number of small deep red barges
and near the central meridian to the north of the sandy coloured Equatorial Zone (EZ) there is a very bright white spot.
The North Tropical Zone (NTrZ),
the white zone to the north of the NEB is now extremely thin and the formerly salmon pink North Temperate Belt (NTeB)
can now be barely distinguished from the belt extending down from the North Polar Region (NPR).
