Description

Jupiter & Saturn are now within reach of the C8 with less than a week until conjunction. When I started imaging 7 years ago, they were nearly opposite to each other in the sky!

Io is close to Jupiter while Ganymede is farther out. Europa's shadow can be seen near the center of Jupiter's disk. Since Saturn is almost twice as far from the Sun as Jupiter, it appears much dimmer. Its shadow can be seen on the rings to the upper left.
