Jupiter: Outbreak in the SEB

2016-12-30

Jupiter observations by Phil Miles show the development of a convective outbreak within Jupiter's South Equatorial Belt (SEB). The SEB is currently in a "non-Fade" stage. This source has erupted on a "whitish" spot according to previous images by Tiziano Olivetti on December 23. The convective source is at B" -16º and 301º (III). It is important to track its evolution, i. e. if it develops into a planetary-scale disturbance or if it is just dispersed by the horizontal wind shear.
