Ganymede eclipsed by Jupiter.

Newly released photo from the Hubble. This time it shows it's moon, Ganymede, just before it went around the back side of the planet.
I didn't even get a good view of Jupiter at all this time from home. It was so low in the sky it had too much atmosphere for a clear view (looked like a water balloon that was tossed roughly up in the air - wiggle, wiggle). To make this even more annying, the neighbor hasn't trimmed his apple tree so there are a bunch of sticks in the way.
