Ganymede & the GRS transit together on Feb 22, 2014

hello folks, 

It looks like Ganymede and the Great Red Spot may transit across Jupiter's face on Saturday Feb 22, 2014 for around 2200 hours Pacific Standard Time.

Callisto's shadow should also be on the face of Jupiter at this same time, on this same evening.

Please post your observations on this event.

Thank you and Clear Skies ----- Silveradogold Cool

You look up and you think, "God made all this and He remembered to make a little speck like me." It's kind of flattering, really. +++ 150mm SkyWatcher refractor - 120mm reflector - Celestron SkyMaster 15x70mm Binoculars +++

Well, we saw the event. It was a very steady sky and we were able to see all three objects, The Great Red Spot, Ganymede, and the shadow of Callisto, crossing the face of Jupiter.

In a phrase, 'It was Grand' !

Please post your observations also....we would love to hear from you.
