Io’s shadow over Jupiter

As Io passes in front of Jupiter, a big shadow is cast over the planet. In this picture I took tonight, it is clearly visible the dark point of shadow in the dead center of Jupiter. At its right a small spot that you may barely watch is Io.

In order to get a sharp image I used a Van Citter deconvolution process.
