Jupiter – Io covered Europa

Jupiter and Moons – 26 February 2015

Last week at the 26th. February I took the chance to make a sketch of the mutual moon cover. Of course, I also observed Jupiter. The air was not so good but in quite moments there were some details to hold.
All in all it was a real fantastic night. First ran Callisto and its shadow over the planet. Then Kallisto covered Europa and at last moved Io over the planetary disk followed by his shadow.

I enjoyed the Moment when Io covered Europe and sketched this nice scenery for my astro-log.

  1. Uwe,

    Excellent observation and sketch. Your log book must be full of them but this one seems very special.
