    Re: Moon Occultation of Jupiter

    In addition to the photo gallery I mentioned in the last message, there's a nice series of photographs converted into an animated GIF here:
    These photographs were taken by Don Parker in Coral Gables, Florida. To picture how this would look through a sextant, Jupiter was about 0.6 arcminutes across, so those dark bands on Jupiter were each about 0.1 arcminute thick.
    Here's the story behind the images:
    Cool, huh?
    It's a shame it was raining here in Chicago at the time of the occultation. Oh, and as I look out the window, it's raining here... AGAIN.
