Jupiter's shadow is just starting to cover the southern limb of Ganymede at the beginning of this animation. I'm always fascinated to watch the eclipse of a moon other than our own. Most rewarding!

I find them fascinating also and caught a similar event about a month ago...but haven't got around to creating the animation yet. :)

Thanks KM. From every angle Jupiter has really been putting on a killer show!
