Jupiter - Aug 17th 2010

My first sighting of all 4 Galilean moons in one night. Went down to SunnyBrook park with two friends. Fortunately Martin had much more stable hand than mine, and took this great shot of Jupiter (32mm lens) with what appears to be 3 Galilean moons. However, after 30 minutes we noticed the 4th Galilean moon coming out of hiding from behind Jupiter. I went back to this photo and noticed a very slight irregularity in Jupiter’s roundness near what would seem to be the geographic South pole. Turns out it was the 4th moon coming around 🙂 Thanks for the snap Martin! Enlarge the pic for best viewing.
