Abstract: We present CCD, photoelectric, and video observations of selected mutual phenomena of the Galilean satellites. The campaign was carried out in Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca as part of the PHEMU2003 international effort. Five different optical systems were used for data acquisition. Here we report the observational results obtained in acceptable meteorological conditions for twenty mutual phenomena, nine eclipses, and eleven occultations. A preliminary analysis of the observations estimates the accuracy of the data.

Keywords: planets and satellites: Galilean satellites - astrometry - eclipses - occultations
