DescriptionJupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, is off the upper left limb of Jupiter on its way to transiting Jupiter across the south polar region (south is up in this image). Bright and dark albedo features are evident on Ganymede despite its small 1.8 arcsec disc size. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is also well seen as is a large dark red barge in the North Equitorial Belt.
