Well, as expected the triple shadow transit was clouded over.  I followed the transits and events on-line.  Was hoping that the Griffith Observatory in LA would bring some nice images, but the feed was terrible.  Very unstable skies.  Every once in a while you could see some banding.  Bate-Papo from Brazil had the best feed for most of the event, but they stopped showing before the third shadow showed up and went into a discussion reviewing what had happened, so Heart of Texas was the final straw!!  :-)   Below screenshot of the three shadows just before Io’s shadow runs off the disk.
