On Saturday evening (Feb 21 in North America) Jupiterís Galilean satellite #2 Europa will transit #1 Io while covering 82% of Ioís diameter. Shortly afterward Europaís shadow will annularly and virtually centrally eclipse Io.

I've created preview graphics for both events and a timetable that can be seen at www.CurtRenz.com/jupiter.html

Photos and descriptions of these events would be welcome additions to this thread.

EDIT: My timetable for tonight's (Feb 21-22) Galilean satellite events has now been posted.
