Telescopically during Mon-Tue night 2016 MAR 21-22 two of Jupiterís great Galilean satellites and their shadows will be seen simultaneously in transit across the disk of Jupiter.

Iíve created preview graphics for these events and much more related to Jupiter that can be viewed on my Jupiter webpage: www.CurtRenz.com/jupiter.html

Photos and descriptions of Jupiter, its Galilean satellites and their shadows would be welcome additions to this thread.

I think I barely caught some of the transit. The shadows were just at the limit of what I could resolve.
