I might even provide a giant improbable satellite scaled to perfectly mask the disc of the sun, revealing otherwise hidden secrets of the universe- or do you think that might be giving the game away too much?

Total solar eclipses are significantly more common on Jupiter than they are on Earth.  Jupiter has five moons capable of creating a total solar eclipse, and, unlike Earth, those five moons create total solar eclipses on the majority of their orbits around Jupiter -- I'm not mathematically skilled enough to do the calculations, but in all likelihood, Jupiter has at least one total solar eclipse every day.  Do you suppose this means that Jupiter has intelligent life that is observing those eclipses to learn about the "hidden secrets of the universe"?
