The image illustrates the changes in the NEB over a couple of days. The bright snake like disturbance near the centre of the NEB has faded considerably in the image from 3rd September. Also the dark barge spots to the right of Oval BA have changed significantly. Jupiter is ever changing which is what makes it such an interesting planetary target.
