This is probably one of the finest views of Saturn I've had for many years.  It is quite remarkable given the low altitude of the planet!!  The Jet stream was well to the north and the sky at that altitude was rather hazy implying stable conditions.  The NEB(s) seems to be dark and irregular and the greenish tint to the NTZ continues.  By 0018UT, conditions returned to normal.
