I missed it! I really need to start paying more attention. I planned to get my scope out later tonight for a look at Mars, but I wasn't aware of this event. Still, thanks for posting this.

Brought out the 76 Tak around 8 PM and got to see it.  I like the Ganymede transits as the shadow is very large.  Best views were with the 5 and 3.5 XW’s (114X and 163X).  Also viewed Saturn.  Both planets had a pale orange color/haze from the smoke in the atmosphere.
