Description:

After a frustrating night of imaging Jupiter in poor conditions, I had the great fortune of seeing three of Jupiter's moons near the planet. Europa had just transited the disc and exited to the right, while two moons, Ganymede (upper) and Io (lower) popped out from behind the planet moving to the left. Callisto was far out frame to the left.
