Saw the Great Red Sport! The North equatorial belt was dark while the South equatorial belt was light. Immediately spotted a dark disk in the SEB, and thought it might be the shadow of satellite in transit as only three moons were visible either side of the planet.

The GRS was dark and round or oval, similar in appearance to a shadow
