Io-A opportunity for Mexico, on 2013 January 27 UTC

Good morning Students at the Planteles of the Escuela Preparatoria, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, and All Radio JOVE Participants,

I am unable to guarantee this opportunity. Let us hope for the best.

I attach several Radio-Jupiter Pro 3 screen images plotted with this wonderful application written by Jim Sky:

 Io-A will begin at 00:10 and end at 02:40 Greewich Mean Time, equal to Universal Time Coordinated or Atomic Time minus exactly 35 seconds.

You may check UTC at the United States Naval Observatory page:

I have set the approximate UNAM coordinates to: 19.3 degrees north latitude, -99.2 degrees west longitude

Note the two maps of the sky showing Jupiter's trajectory.

Radio-Jupiter Pro 3 is FUN !!

Give my regards to Professor Alfonso Castillo Abrego and tell him I am a Basque American.
The Basque Nation is very small and very ancient, it is located in France and Spain :


I am a retired Radio Astronomer who worked for many years with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Virginia, West Virginia, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Muy cordiales saludos
Victor Herrero Arrieta
