    I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. and saw the last three moons disappear (Io, Europa and Ganymede). I also saw Europa's shadow cross most of Jupiter and witnessed Io coming out of Jupiter's shadow. Way cool. 8)

    The last thing I saw was Europa reappearing while its shadow was still on Jupiter.

    I couldn't wait for the Ganymede transit, I had to go to work in the woods today. But yesterday I was able to identify and dig my very first Ginseng plant AND see the Jupiter show. A great day! I had four astronomy interested locals with me up on my deck at home for that. AGNFA! 🙂

    Today not so good. Bees got me about 5 or 6 times and chased me through the woods for 100 yards before they gave up.  Oh well. ::)
    Cool!  I hear its pretty tough finding Ginseng down there but my neighbor Leonard is always looking.
    I got a chuckle about the bees 🙂  Sounds like I missed another good observing session ;-(
