Jupiter has lost a belt!

Jupiter has lost a belt! Over a period of a year, one of Jupiter’s two main dark belts — the dark stripes most visible in amateur telescopes — has faded completely away. The South Equatorial Belt (SEB) is gone, leaving just the north belt (NEB) viewable in small telescopes. Credit: Anthony Wesley.-
