During the evening of Thursday 2015 MAR 05, Jupiterís Galilean satellite #1 Io will annularly transit #3 Ganymede, while #2 Europa is eclipsed by the shadow of Jupiter. Satellite #4 Callisto will appear near Io and Ganymede. Nearly two hours later, Ioís shadow will annularly eclipse Ganymede.

Iíve created preview graphics and a timetable for these events 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 Jupiter webpage now contains the timetable for tonight's (March 5-6) Galilean satellite events.
