Recently,I began to process the images which I taken in July.These two images captured an occurrence as the shadows of Europa transited across the giant gas planet’s banded face.

 

The first one shows the beginning of this event. On the left is the moon Ganymede and on the right, Europa. The shadows from Europa is on the edge of the planet.

 

The second one is about 40 minutes later. Europa-which orbits is closer to Jupiter and so appears to move more quickly-is moving to the left of Ganymede,with its shadows in the middle of the planet.Meanwhile,Io has entered the frame at left.

 

Equipments: DOB16, ASI290MM, TV PM4x, ADC, 7Brand RGB Filter
