Description:

The 95% waxing gibbous Moon on Christmas, with Jupiter and three of the Galilean Moons visible, from lower left to upper right diagonally, Callisto, Ganymede and Europa. Io is not visible because it was transiting Jupiter at the time. This is a composite photo from three images, in order to compensate for the relative brightness of the objects as well as the total field of view.
