On July 15, 2012, the Moon occulted planet Jupiter. The event was visible from Italy just before dawn. We managed to observe it from the Gianicolo, a very nice part of Rome (Italy) with a nice view on the east direction, where the event was going to show.

We managed to get several images with a 200mm lens, making many shots and time lapses. You can see some of these results on this page.
