This image of Saturn was taken from the porch of Chris Go through his C-11 in Cebu where excellent seeing is de rigueur most of the year. Chris, Tomio Akutsu, and I collaborated to capture this picture. It was Chris who first discovered Jupiter’s “Red Jr.� on February 24, 2006. Exactly two years later and also from Cebu, Tomio discovered a third red spot on Jupiter.
