Mutual eclipses and occultations of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter which will occur in 2002–2003 were predicted independently by J.-E. Arlot and by K. Aksnes, and information on the visibility of the events from any site on the Earth is provided on the IMCCE web site based on Arlot's predictions. However, many unobservable events, such as the eclipsed satellites are in the shadow of Jupiter, are included in Arlot's predictions and there is no way of eliminating of such unobservable events from his predictions. This paper lists all such events.
