Wednesday night was a short one due to work the next morning. There was no Great Red Spot (GRS) visible but I was able to get some acceptable imagery that included 3 of Jupiter’s large moons. They are quite blurred due to their quick motion and our atmosphere, but they are definitely visible.

The moon visible on the right of Jupiter is the moon Europa. It disappears behind the planet. The second moon is Ganymede. It appears to the lower left of the planet as it emerges from Jupiter’s shadow. The third moon shows up from the upper left towards the end of the video. That moon is Callisto.
