    We have observed the four Galilean satellites of Jupiter during their mutual occultations and eclipses from February to April 2003 using a CCD camera attached to the 32.5 cm refractor of the observatory of Lille. We have recorded 13 lightcurves of these events. We have performed a first astrometric reduction based on the method developed in Noyelles et al. (2003). This analysis of the results and comparison with theory show that the observations are good; the residuals are about 0.03 arcsec. The observations are available in electronic form at the CDS via anonymous ftp to cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr ( or via http://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/qcat?J/A+A/410/343.
