Image of Jupiter taken from St. John's, Newfoundland.
Photographed by Tim Caruk - August 24, 2010

 
 

This image of Jupiter was taken on August 24, 2010 using a 110 mm diameter ED refractor telescope attached with a Canon A 590 camera, showing exceptional detail for the aperture size. Jupiter's southern equatorial belt appears to have disappeared in this photo.  Usually two darker red coloured belts appear as a result lower level clouds appearing in these regions.  Scientists believe
that high altitude  white clouds have currently obscured the southern darker region.
