his was going to be my best GRS imaging window for the next 10 days. Fortunately forecast low/mid altitude clouds stayed away,
and the power only came on from one of our notorious South African loadshedding
(power cuts to conserve the network stability) sessions about half an hour before these images.
I am pleased to say that I was able to capture a full set of data.
The 4 large SEBs rings (to the right of the GRS) can be seen approaching the GRS Hollow.
The first is about to enter the hollow,very closely followed by the second.
The chimney appears to be closed at this point,and I am hoping that it will remain so as the rings move through the Hollow,
giving them the best chance to interact with the GRS.
In the CH4 image,my first for this year,
I cannot see any significant methane bright activity at this stage,
so it will be interesting to see any developments over the next few weeks as the SEBs rings pass through the GRS hollow.
Amongst the wealth of other details that can be seen,
I noted a small red oval that may be interacting with the white oval immediately below the GRS.
I will have further potential GRS imaging windows on 17,20,22 and 25 Feb,
although the GRS will not be ideally placed again until 27 Feb.

Hi all,poor seeing this morning so once again this is a mix or IR and
RGB data. The NEB continues to look interesting with a dark brown/red
colouration and a lot of rift activity.
