And there they still stood, obscurely commemorating man's triumph over time and matter and the triumph of time and matter over man. -- Aldous Huxley, on the Mayan stelae at the Quirigua ruins
Quote:Is it possible for the bright transiting moon to just momentarily occult its shadow. On Dec 2nd, I was watching an bright/shadow transit of (I think) Europa and momentarily saw a bright flash of light within the dark shadow. Just lasted for a moment though. Could it have been the moon itself I momentarily saw in the transiting shadow?
