That's Europa casting the shadow, and Io off to the right (again).

OU Still Sucks

Don't forget, the big game is coming up!



I put up a new CafePress store to point out that no matter what the score, OU still sucks.

Jove's looking kinda dull this year. The southern equatorial belt is missing, and there's not a whole lot of activity in the equator either.

A day past opposition, and we got a break in the clouds. That's Europa casting a shadow on the planet, and Io off to the right.

The color on this one is weird, not sure why. Didn't get a good luminance frame, so this is just RGB.
