Jupiter and Its Moons, Together with Our Moon
Jupiter and Its Moons, Together with Our Moon

Jupiter and its four largest moons, on a night when Jupiter happened to appear close in the sky to our moon (a "conjunction").

From left to right: Europa, Ganymede, Io, Jupiter, Callisto, and, at the far right, the Moon.

This is a high-dynamic-range image. A regular photo bright enough to show Jupiter's moons would have our moon very overexposed.
