(Sunday, Oct. 31, 2:15am, IST) The black shadow of both Europa and Ganymede will be visible on the planet at the same time, while Europa itself will also be visible as a bright dot transiting the disk of the planet.

This will occur on Sunday morning, October 31 at 2:15AM, Israel Standard Time (IST). We hope to be out observing. Come on down and join us!
