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?

If you see this thread thank you for the response. I have tried to respond but nothing will go through at this end either, so this the only way I could respond at all. Photos were interesting and all were seen but there was also several of the moons that could not be seen until they appeared near the edge and in the meantime there were 3 dark circles. Hmmm.
