Get out your Telescopes

Fun for backyard observers:

Jupiter is Changing its Stripes Right in Front of Our Eyes

It always pays to keep an eye on Jupiter. According to posters at astronomy forums, these disruptions are visible in medium size telescope. My back is still a bit too tender to risk lugging my SCT (a C-8, made in Celestron's 'PowerStar' era) into the back yard, but I should be able to do so in a few days.
