G impact site. The (impressive) aspect did not change noticeably during the evening. These images were taken at 19:29 UT, 20:39 UT and 21:41 UT, but the seeing (fair at the beginning) became awful (Jupiter low on the horizon and wind, after some clouds). They have only been processed with unsharp masking. Ganymede was near Jupiter (on the limb side) and passed in front of Jupiter's disk.
