A pleasant morning all round as the recent jet stream had eased off a bit,
and I had some nice conditions for Jupiter as sunrise approached,
and I was also able to glance regularly across to the west as the lunar eclipse progressed.
The STB spots are well seen and DS8 appears to be extending. Not sure if it is new,
but there is an outbreak in the NEB(S),although it does not show as bright in CH4.
The large festoon on the NEBs is impressive in the IR.
The whitish clouds trailing off the NEBs show as light in the UV. Io and its shadow were in transit.

I got one brief run in for Jupiter before the sky clouded over completely and thus the limited quality.
The GRS was at the Central Meridian.
These are RGB and IR 642nm BP views at very similar timestamps.
A chimney may be about to open up north of the GRS.
I didn't see evidence of this in Clyde's image of a couple of days back (May 15th).
