June : It’s definitely the month for Jupiter! In the weeks prior to this update 2 major events have occurred. The first is a general cloud clearing event along the equator which has turned from it’s usual white to a light brown colour, looking very different to the last decade. It is thought that this event may occur on a 12-year cycle. Also, amateur astronomers were first to notice turbulent activity around the Great Red Spot with large red “flakes” being sheared off and ripped out into the equatorial jetstream. At least 2 major flakes have sheared off and it remains to be seen what this means for the the GRS which has been stable for over 400 years but whose stability may now be coming to an end. Jupiter’s apparent size in telescopes already exceeds that of opposition last year and opposition this year will be on the 11th June where it will be bigger and brighter than any other time of the year.
