Uranus bright feature

2018-10-28

Recent observations by Blake Estes acquired on 22 October 2018 using the 60'' Mount Wilson telescope show a bright cloud feature at the border of the bright polar hood. This storm has now been observed by other amateur astronomers and is visible in some observations obtained with large telescopes.

Marc Delcroix has studied the amateur images and has provided the ephemeris bellow. Note that this is the first storm observed in Uranus by amateurs since 2014 and that the professional community would highly wellcome new observations of this feature. Observations with non narrow IR filters like the 610, 685 and 742 nm are recommended.
