Jupiter Transits Nov. 17th UT new
      #3452385 - 11/16/09 11:19 PM

Thanks to Curt Renz, aka Centaur, I was made aware of a pair of transits involving Jupiter and its Gailean moons. I made this sketch posted in Curt's thread of the event.

The drawing is a composite of a field sketch of Jupiter done with a 2B and 4B graphite pencil laid on a digital background with Europa and Ganymede added digitally (taken from field notes). I flipped the drawing horizontally for the south up preceding to the left view and added the text.

I think this is a good example of how you can take an old fashion field sketch and add to it with a computer for presentation on the web. This sketch only exists in cyberspace (unless I choose to print out a copy).

Nicely done, Michael! I'm hoping to get one last shot of Jupiter before the season is over. It's a good dusk object right now if I can zip home from work! - j

Michael,

Congratulations on capturing the transit of Ganymede by Europa. These mutual occultation events are always exciting to watch. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thanks, folks. By 8 PM local time, Jupiter is moving on pretty fast--I had to quickly move my scope from where I had it set up or I wouldn't have been able to see this transit. I hope you can both get at least one more look at the King so we can see your fine sketches.

Very nice sketch of this cool event, too many clouds here, perhaps i will be able to catch the eclipse on the 19th.
