Tables about mutual phenomena can be created also with the software Occult 4 from Dave Herald.
Tables created with Occult 4 are used in Occult Watcher from Hristo Pavlov.
If sun and earth are passing through the orbital plane of the jovian moons it is possible to observe mutual eclipses and occultations over a time period of some months. This events occur in the Jupiter system every six years, in the Saturn system every 14 years and in the system of Uranus only every 42 years.
From my position in northern Austria mutual events in the system of Jupiter are observable in this time periods:
2002/10 - 2003/07
2009/03 - 2010/01
2014/08 - 2015/07
2021/01 - 2021/08
After I had participated a speech at the Observatory in Paris in November 2008, I have participated the worldwide observation campain 2009 and 2015 of this mutual events in the system of Jupiter. The captured data from 2009 and 2015 was sent to the "Institut de Mecanique Celeste et de Calcul des Ephemerides" (IMCCE) in Paris.
