I'm trying to view the March 7541 transit of Jupiter from Saturn. I have a
couple questions on getting this into view:
is there a way to "follow" an object while I adjust the clock? If I center the Sun in the view and jump ahead an hour, the Sun obviously goes way out of view. Then I have to zoom out, find it, zoom in, and see if Jupiter is there. This makes finding the transit very time-consuming.
how do I hide Saturn's rings?
Thanks for any assistance. I think it would be cool to make a script to view
all possible transit combinations.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
I figured out #1.
One other question:
It appears that it occurs late on the 22nd and into the 23rd, but it is not a
full transit. Only about half of Jupiter's disk is obscuring the sun. Is
Stellarium incorrect about this? Should it be a full transit?
Again, I don't think a source is accurate enough that far in the future to say
for sure if Jupiter will be a full transit or partial one. One source I saw
has the transit happening 6 days earlier on the 17th of March.
If you want to see Jupiter cross the central disk of the sun in Stellarium,
view the transit from Titan instead of Saturn.
