Jupiter here, it's seen without its known Great Red Spot. Perhaps if I waited a few hours it would had enter in the scene, knowing that the rotation on its own axis of this beautiful planet takes just 9 hours and 48 minutes. The night before, on March 11, 2014, I managed to synchronize my observation when the Red Spot of the planet was facing us.
Even if spot is not visible here, we can still admire its brown bands surrounding it.
