I predict that early on Thursday evening (Feb 19 in North America) the shadow of Jupiterís Galilean satellite #1 Io will annularly eclipse #3 Ganymede. This will be occurring in the midst of a period in which the tilt of the satellitesí orbital planes allow for mutual Galilean satellite events to be viewed from Earth.

Iíve created two preview graphics and a timetable that can be viewed at www.CurtRenz.com/jupiter.html

Photos and descriptions of the event would be welcome additions to this thread.

EDIT: My Galilean satellite timetable for tonight (Feb 19-20) has now been posted.
