Abstract

Abstract Photographic observations of Jupiter and its Red Spot between 13 November 1969 and 21 September 1970 are reported. The Red Spot continues its 90-day oscillation in longitude with considerable regularity. An outstanding event of the apparition was the appearance of a new disturbance in the South Tropical Zone. A bright spot at zenographic latitude 23°.8 N displayed the shortest rotation period ever recorded on Jupiter, 9 h47 m3 s.
