<h3>About Javascript Jupiter</h3>
<p>
<b>New for 2013!</b> Now you can predict future events, see eclipses,
and I improved the graphics so it's more obvious when moons are emerging
from behind Jupiter. Please report any bugs you find.
<p>
Times are approximate. There are lots of different models for Jupiter's
moons, and they all seem to give slightly different results, especially
for shadow events and eclipses. Start observing ten or fifteen
minutes early if you want to be sure of catching something.
