Jupiter Shadow Transit with an iPhone

Enjoy this short four-image GIF of the transit of the shadow of Ganymede across the face of Jupiter on April 14, 2015. Taken by Andrew Symes of Ottawa, Canada with an iPhone 6 and a Celestron NexStar 8SE alt-az telescope, this image also shows several belts and zones in the atmosphere of Jupiter including the prominent north and south equatorial belts, along with the possibly perpetual anticyclone of the Great Red Spot.
