Perijove 22 was not a 'Great Red Spot (GRS) flyby'. Despite this, map-projected images show some details in the GRS' western half (the GRS was on the limb in a few PJ22 images). And the convective area west of the GRS was fairly well imaged during this flyby. This is a map-projected mosaic of PJ22 images 39 to 43 in approximately true color/contrast and enhanced versions:

From this it is clear that the convective area west (or WNW) of the GRS is still active. The appearance of other parts of the South Equatorial Belt (SEB) has recently at least sometimes been as if the SEB was about to fade (turn whitish) but if history is any guide, this shouldn't happen unless the convective activity west of the GRS shuts down.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens here.
