    Report on the PJ40 images.  Here is the text.  PDF of mini-figures, and ZIP file of full-size figures, will follow in subsequent comments.

    PJ40, on 2022 Feb.25, came just 8 days before geocentric solar conjunction, so these pictures provided the only view of the planet over this period. The views of lower latitudes showed quiescent sectors without major features, suggesting that the NEB(S) disturbances may not have progressed much. The detailed views of the polar regions generally confirmed some interesting aspects seen at other recent perijoves. A visual highlight was the enormous elongated shadow of Ganymede coming onto the disk on the S. Tropical Zone.
