Description

Jupiter through great seeing on June 17th, 2021. After expanding north last year, the North Equatorial Belt is fading except for the southern edge, leaving behind a few white spots and brown barges. In contrast, the typically white Equatorial Zone is still mostly orange for the fourth consecutive year. Io and its shadow are transiting across the EZ. The volcanic moon's bright equator and dark poles are clearly visible against the bright backdrop of Jupiter.
