Default Jupiter Moon Shadows

On Aug 26th there was supposed to be a double shadow on Jupiter. I was wondering if any of you had the chance to check it out at around 8:30PM. I saw 3 distinct perfectly symmetrical black circles on the disk of the planet so it would seem that it was a triple shadow, a rather rare event. I called one of the astronomy magazines and they said they had a report of a similar observation from another observer also here in Arizona. Comments anyone?
