Jupiter - 16.2.2015 at 21.14 - 16.2.2015 at 21.24 Riihimäki Observation number 33710

Visibility III / V

Yesterday I decided to try a long time on webcam with an extension of the telescope to take a video of Jupiter. Be that as it may, I was apparently able to capture at the same time the passing of the moon of Ganymede in front of Jupiter. That black dot in the time in the middle of Jupiter is probably the shadow of the moon.
