Shadow on Jupiter?

At the end of my observing session on Saturday morning, as the dawn sky was brightening at around 3am, I tried some quick shots of Jupiter to see if I could pick out the new impact scar (see previous blog entry).

Unfortunately, the lens had misted up quite badly by this point (unknown to me) so the image quality is not good.

Is that a dark scar on the top right side of the planet? Probably not...
