Jupiter and Io animation

Welp, Io still exists as of Monday...

Mike Salway posted on the Cloudy Nights Telescope Reviews forum a nice animation created from images he acquired using his 12" Newtonian from New South Wales, Australia. Definitely worth checking out at the link below. Once at the forum thread, just click on animation.

The ALPO-Japan website has a nice image taken about 27 minutes before the start of Salway's animation by Anthony Wesley from Murrumbateman, Australia. It shows Io against Jupiter's North Tropical Zone (I think that's right, you can correct me in the comments if I am wrong).
