Re: And Tonight, Ganymede + its shadow in transit

I caught it just as Ganymede was at the limb. The air had just enough turbulence to make it impossible to see Ganymede itself, but at first it appeared as a small bump on the limb, then grew into a larger bump over the next several minutes, finally separating entirely. The shadow was crisp at 120x in my Stellarvue 102EDT.
