Jupiter looks so different without the South Equatorial Belt (SEB).
It disappeared a couple of months ago and is expected to reappear in the next few months.
On September 20th, Jupiter was closer to us than it has been since 1963.
A whopping 49.86" of apparent size and only 591,495,936 kilometers away from us.

In the early morning hours of December 7, Jupiter was occulted by the Moon.

This animation shows the Moon sliding in front of Jupiter. Unfortunately, the first part was blocked by clouds.
