Jupiter tonight

Right now the GRS is approaching the Western limb and Europa has entered the Eastern limb. My 10" reflector @ 224X clearly shows the moon against the globe. Watching Europa approach and come between us and the planet was spellbinding. No moon shadow yet. Plenty of cloud detail seen tonight from my location.

Europa has now left the slightly less bright area near Jupiter's limb and is lost in the Equatorial brightness. The GRS has also rotated out of view around the western limb.
