Anyone looking at or photographing the large disturbances next to the GRS on Jupiter?

I was noticing that the GRS was a light pink color that I had never noticed before. Next to it something was evident... but your seeing conditions must be better than mine. Are you looking thru your cooled C11?

The region of the South Equatorial Belt (SEB) following the Great Red Spot (GRS) is very active. I observed it last night (image posted above). This irregular, bright zone lies primarily over the mid-section of the SEB then deviates towards the south (below the GRS). Good luck observing Jupiter.
