Description
The evening after New Year’s Day found Jupiter approximately 4.5° due south of the waxing gibbous Moon. In this image you can see the four Galilean satellites forming a line from our perspective as they orbit the giant planet. Starting at the bottom, they are Ganymede, Europa, Io (all below Jupiter), and Callisto.
