Jupiter Shadow Transit

Jupiter is finally starting to rise before it gets too late. I aimed my scope at it at the end of the session and noticed a shadow spot from Io, so I recorded a time lapse covering about 10 minutes. The shadow is obvious, and Io can just be seen as a light spot moving near the equator. The shadow reaches the edge of the great red spot at the end of the loop.
