On Monday evening (Feb 23 in North America) Jupiterís Galilean satellite #3 Ganymede will occult 98% of the diameter of #1 Io. Shortly afterward Ganymedeís shadow will totally eclipse Io.

Iíve 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 23-24) Galilean satellite events has now been uploaded to my Jupiter webpage.
