Tonight (27th July) is a very busy night on Jupiter with 3 events worth observing and imaging.
All times in AEST.
- The Wesley Impact Scar will be visible between about 10pm and midnight. It transits the CM at about 10:40pm.
- Also tonight, at 11:24pm (lasting for about 8 minutes), Io’s shadow eclipses Europa.
- Then later, at 12:14am (lasting for about 8 minutes), Io occults (passes in front of) Europa.
Io and Europa will be the two closest moons to Jupiter, to the West of the gas giant. You won’t be able miss them!
A very busy night worth staying up for. I’ll be out amongst it – skies will be clear, hoping for good seeing!
Good luck for steady seeing at your place!
