Thanks Curt. Will try for it if it stops snowing. Appreciate all the data you provide.
Glad you're appreciative, buddyjesus & nervanix.
Interestingly, the occultation of Ganymede by Jupiter will completely end at 17:03 CDT. Then for two and a half hours Ganymede will be shining brightly until it begins entering eclipse in Jupiter’s shadow at 19:32 CDT. Io, however, will emerge from occultation at 19:56 CDT, while already eclipsed.

I stayed until Ganymede reemerged from eclipse. At that time, clouds began to roll in rather rapidly. By the time I was almost home, a brief snow flurry began.
