spot splitting?

I put out a note on the RASC Toronto Centre Facebook page. I wondered, out loud, what was going on, on Jupiter.

Jason said, sardonically, the huge storm that's bigger than the Earth... Har.

Someone said, quite correctly, there's "always [something] going on." True.

But I wondered if anyone else was thinking the same as me... that it looked like the Great Red Spot was splitting... That was the hullabaloo over in the room.

I referred to Chris Go's photos on October 7.

It was Katrina who set me straight: it was Oval BA (the "little red spot") moving past the GRS.

Ah. OK. Call off your dogs...
