Seven Mutual Events At Jupiter

On the 9th of February 2015, there will be seven mutual events at Jupiter.  This is the most number of mutual events this season, as far as I'm aware.  All four Galilean moons will be at play.

05:26 - 05:29: Io occults Europa.  Visibility for this event will be North and South America

05:32 - 05:34: Io eclipses Europa.  Visibility for this event will also be North and South America

10:34 - 10:40: Ganymede occults Europa.  Visible from western North America, all of the Pacific (including Hawaii), and some of east Asia.

10:47 - 10:50: Ganymede eclipses Europa.  Also visible from western North America, all of the Pacific (including Hawaii), and some of east Asia.

13:33 - 13:41: Callisto eclipses Europa.  Visible from the western Pacific, east Asia, and Australia.

20:56 - 21:01: Ganymede occults Io.  Visible from west Asia, all of Europe, and all of Africa.

21:06 - 21:13: Ganymede eclipses Io.  Also visible from west Asia, all of Europe, and all of Africa.

Dust off your photometers and take some data!

I'll post more information on my 'Jupiter Today' podcast for 2/9/2015.
