Space.com has a terrific review of a Jupiter event occurring tomorrow night-ish, depending on where you are in the U.S. or abroad. Come to think of it, you may not be able to see it everywhere on Earth. Anyway, the play-by-play, as quoted from Space.com, is as follows:
- 6:51 p.m. EST/3:51 p.m. PST Io will begin a transit in front of Jupiter’s disk
- 7:04 p.m. EST/4:04 p.m. PST Ganymede will also begin a transit of Jupiter
- 7:58 p.m. EST/4:58 p.m. PST Io's shadow will begin to cross Jupiter’s face
- 9:05 p.m. EST/6:05 p.m. PST Io will end its transit
- 10:07 p.m. EST/7:07 p.m. PST Ganymede will complete its transit
- 10:10 p.m. EST/7:10 p.m. PST Io's shadow will end its transit
- 11:45 p.m. EST/8:45 p.m. PST Ganymede's shadow will begin to transit Jupiter
You may notice that the above really only has to do with 2 of Jupiter's moons and none of those are Europa. That's because this blog is equal opportunity Jupiter news.

Also, I will be at the NOLA ComicCon this Saturday, as tweeted and blogged about. SATURDAY only because it's a long drive. If you will be there, stop by and say "hi!"
