On July 19, a dark spot was observed on Jupiter. And a bright spot on Venus! Whatever is our solar system coming to!

Meanwhile, the image at right was taken by Oleg using the FOTON AstroCam attached to an 8-inch f/10 and a 2x Barlow. 306 video frames (720x480 pixels) were stacked for this composite. Notice the Great Red Spot.

Astronomy Now Online has the Venus story.

nothing more to see. please move along.
