On Satuday evening (Feb 28 in the Americas) Jupiterís Galilean satellite #2 Europa will annularly transit #1 Io. A little later Europaís shadow will eclipse 81% of the diameter of Io.

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

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

EDIT: My Jupiter webpage now contains the timetable for tonight's (Feb 28 - Mar 1) Galilean satellite events.
