I had some good seeing conditions this morning for the transit of the GRS.
The Oval BA can be seen on the eastern limb about to rotate out of view. It seems to have a slightly pink hue.
The detail within the GRS is interesting with a bright eddy at upper left in the image. The Red Spot Hollow (RSH) is quite yellow in colour, with perhaps a touch of green.
The North Temperature Belt (NTEB) has become quite pale pink in colour.
The South Equatorial Belt south (SEBs) at the leading edge of the GRS is an intense purple-brown colour.
