2016 Galilean Moon Phenomena

Post by Christopher K. »

Sunday 10 January, 11:22pm to Monday 11 January, 5:37am CDT

From the time Jupiter reaches fifteen degrees in altitude until the edge of night, an amazing live performance is given by three of its four principal moons--a series of transits across the face of the giant. Below are the approximate beginning and ending Central Standard times...
Europa, 11:22pm (already in progress) to 1:21am
Callisto, 2:04am to 4:18am
Io's shadow, beginning at 3:22am
Io, beginning at 4:27am

Complete darkness ends at 5:37am.
