This sequence of three sets of images
by amateur astronomer and planetary imager Christopher Go of Cebu, Philippines, shows how prominent Jupiter's South Equatorial Belt (SEB) was in August 2009 (left). By November of last year (center), the belt had begun to fade some. And the current pair (right), taken May 13, 2010, shows no SEB at all. South is up in all these images. Christopher GoClick here
