Jupiter's GRS with an Io shadow Transit 3.7/19

Heads Up -Wednesday 3rd July, 2019.
Some nice Jupiter viewing at a decent hour, catch the Great Red Spot with an Io Shadow Transit.

Great Red Spot Transit:
19:35 AEST (approx.) - All Australian States.
Best viewing two hour window (one hour before transiting central meridian to one hour after).

Jupiter's Moon, Io (all times AEST):
17:35 - Io Transit Ingress (Eastern States)
18:07 - Io Shadow Ingress (Eastern States)
19:47 - Io Transit Egress (Visible most of Australia)
20:20 - Io Shadow Egress (Visible most of Australia)

Quasar Publishing. I love this book to pieces, it gives a fantastic diary of events in detail for the whole year.

Enjoy. Oh Btw! A great way to remember Jupiter's brightest moons.... I (io) Eat (Europa) Green (Ganymede) Cheese (Callisto).

I have a fond memory around 10 years ago when I caught my first shadow transit and didn't realise it. I was super cranky at the black speck of dirt on my eyepiece ruining my obs. I eventually realised it was a shadow transit

Weather forecast is not favourable for down here for the rest of the week. Doing a run of Jupiter videos atm with reasonable seeing for a change.
Haven't had chance to capture many transit yet the opposition.
