On Apr 10th, 2017, there was a special assembly in a night sky: a Moon was seen tighten to Jupiter and Jupiter’s 4 largest moons, famous as a Galilean moons. Photographer Göran Strand went out and prisoner a pleasing print above of a whole organisation in a singular frame.

“It’s a really pleasing steer in a sky tonight with a Moon and Jupiter so tighten together,” a Swedish astrophotographer writes. “At a time for this print (19:33 UTC) they were 1°45′ apart.”

At a bottom of a frame, from tip to bottom, we see Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, Io, and Jupiter.

Strand says that given there was some cloud cover that night, he was means to wait until a light was partially blocked by clouds so that he could display for Jupiter and a moons.

“Closer and brighter, a possess healthy satellite appears to dawn large,” writes NASA’s Astronomy Picture of a Day, that featured Strand’s shot. “But Callisto, Ganymede, and Io are physically incomparable than Earth’s Moon, while H2O universe Europa is usually somewhat smaller.”

And here’s another engaging fact they indicate out: in this one photo, Strand prisoner 5 of a 6 largest heavenly satellites in a Solar System — usually Saturn’s moon Titan is left out of a shot.
