Jupiter Double Shadow Transit Tonight, May 18, 2017
« on: May 18, 2017, 12:36:31 PM »
There's going to be a double shadow transit on Jupiter tonight from 8:52pm until 9:40pm.  The shadow's of Io and Europa will be seen traveling westward across Jupiter, with Europa leading.  Brighter moon Io will be transiting westward over the darker North Equatorial Belt if you can pick it out.

Pretty cool, just wish the seeing was better tonight here in Santa Rosa.

Seeing was pretty bad last night, but I did get one shot that shows the two shadows pretty clearly.
