For a little more than 2 hours in the night from Saturday 17 to Sunday, May 18, the shadows of Io and Callisto, Jupiter’s moons will be visible on the giant planet.

DUO SHADOWS:

Callisto

On the night of Saturday 17 to Sunday, May 18, 2014, from 23 h 21 min and 2 h 7 min, the satellites Io and Callisto project jointly their shadows on Jupiter. This is the part that takes the double transit, 10 min after midnight.

ADVICE:

The planet is then at ten degrees above the horizon west-northwest. An instrument of 200 mm diameter and a magnification of 100 to 200 times is essential to the success of direct observation and unequivocal phenomenon.
