Jupiter events tonight

by Jane Houston Jones

Nice shadow transit of Callisto at about 8:00 p.m. 1/17/03. Nice moon lineup with Calisto near the planet then Io and Europa close together on the east side, and Ganymede alone on the west, but a couple stars thrown in on both sides to confuse everything.

Too bad we are now fogged in or we would have set up the AP180EDT for the rest of the night. Guess it's movies and popcorn now.

Even passersby on the sidewalk could see the shadow.
