Go Back

Io eclipses and transits Ganymede On August 16, 2009, amateur astronomer Christopher Go captured this fourteen-frame animation on two of Jupiter's moons. You can see smaller Io's shadow cross Ganymede just before the moon itself transits.

I suffered a life changing episode on 18/03/2013 because of a hit and run driver but the Planetry news kept me going and my darling wife Jessica became my fulltime carer so now she's been reading them to me during the hard times and now that I've got a new powerchair maybe powerchair drive units could form the basses of cheap Planetry rovers. Keep up the good work Bil, yours Andy & Jessica Simpson. ;)
