Jupiter, Ganymede and Io Sequence










Photographer: Piero Armando
Jupiter now rides high in the night sky, so its fully illuminated. The characteristics of its heavily banded atmosphere and the movements of its four prominent satellites are easily visible in even a relatively small telescope, such as my 8 in (20 cm) Celestron. On the night of September 29, I captured the above sequence from the balcony of my home in Torino, Italy. This sequence shows not only Jupiter and its moons, Ganymede and Io, but also the shadow and subsequent transit of Io. Ganymede, the largest moon in the solar system, is to the left of Jupiter. The time of this photo sequence is 14 minutes.
