Our setup :
What the show could have been ... :
The 4 galilean moons of Jupiter will be part of the show. First of all
Callisto will disappear, then Io and Ganymede. At this time Jupiter's disk will be gradually blocked out and finally Europa will disappear.
Callisto will be the first to come out then Io and Ganymede which will
be very close to Jupiter's disk. The show will end with Europa's return.
