Tonite (16 May 2017 about 20h UT) I tried some imaging on Jupiter and noticed a dark spot. First guess was oh, the GRS is visible, but according to my favourite software Guide 9 it was not. Nor a shadow of Jupiters moons. So is that dark spot something unusual or just a feature of Jupiters always changing atmosphere?
For the second image I used an infrared filter (685 nm) that usually would have shown that GRS as a bright spot, but its still dark.

We are seeing in here in the USA tonight as well... not quite as sharp as yours, however.
