A number of swirls stand out on the images stringing out in different directions. Planet X is one pixel surrounded by diffuse highlight intensity. I suspect diminishing with distance away. I perceive a ring around Planet X, some pixels further out and not complete on every image, but a defined reflective zone (ring) not immediately adjacent to Planet X but over time/dates slowly expanding outwards over the sets of images, growing in size. A reflective edge if you will on the "close hugging cloud". It is difficult to transfer from FITS to GIF. (It is very subtle. A large dark area (inverted) appears on this image, which is also on Frame 2 at the same X/Y coords of that image. So I consider it a camera issue.
