During the early morning of Saturday 2015 MAR 14, the shadow of Jupiter's Galilean satellite #1 Io will annularly eclipse #3 Ganymede. At that time all four Galilean satellites will appear in a rather tight grouping. Earlier on Friday afternoon/evening, a similar shadow eclipse will occur albeit partial that will only be a nighttime event on the North American east coast.

I've 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.
