Jupiter on March 18, 2016 Astrophotographer Damian Peach describes this as "the best image I've ever taken with a straight colour camera." He points out the large orange anticyclone in the far southern latitudes and the tiny pink spot in the South Tropical Belt latitude. The white spot in the North Equatorial Belt is Spot Z. The wake behind the Red Spot is turbulent as it was for the Cassini flyby (but not for the New Horizons flyby).
