[BAA-ebulletin 00977] Storm on Neptune

BAA electronic bulletin

On 2017 June 10, Australian amateurs Darryl Milika and Pat Nicholas imaged a bright spot in Neptune's northern hemisphere. They used a C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain, with IR, R, G and B filters.
A series of images taken from 19:45 UT until 21:02 UT showed the spot moved with the rotation of the planet.
Further observations are urgently required to see if this storm persists.
