Murrumbateman’s Anthony Wesley caught Jupiter with the shadow of Europa crossing the Great Red Spot. A great photo for the time and low angle.

Here is a low-res image of Jupiter from this morning showing the GRS and shadow of Europa. The image is IR+G+B. This was taken not long before sunrise from Roma in Queensland with Jupiter at an altitude of about 25 degrees.
