The One That Got Away

ONe of the joys of familylife is the taxi service aspect. I had the camera set up to record the Iridium flare, but After ferrying people to sleepovers and and meetings, I got back home just as the iridium satellite was fading near the Moon.

Also, I had forgotten about the Moon with Callisto. The Moons light made it difficult to see Callisto in binoculars, let alone with the unaided eye (sigh). On the 17th the nearly Full Moon will be not far from Jupiter, but there is a short time window at 8:00 pm where Callisto may be visible. The 25th looks like our best bet this month.
