Infrared image was taken in the early afternoon with the planet fairly high in the sky. The seeing was quite poor but with some steady moments. The ultraviolet image was taken at sunset. Some subtle detail can be seen which matches an image posted by Bill Leatherbarrow taken at around the same time.
