Io transiting Jupiter on 10-8-10

While trying out some stuff tonight I noticed that Io would be transiting Jupiter tonight and so I set up to capture it. You can see Io in front of Jupiter while it’s shadow creates an eclipse on the cloud tops of the planet. Very cool. I also had a couple visitors this evening who enjoyed seeing Io emerge from in front of Jupiter while its shadow continued across.
