See Jupiter’s Galilean moons in motion from Juno’s camera

Juno’s visible camera had a bird’s-eye view of Jupiter’s four largest moons over the last few weeks, recording the satellites  in their orbital ballet around the giant planet as the spacecraft approached from above Jupiter’s north pole.

Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto — Jupiter’s four Galilean moons listed from the innermost to outermost — were discovered in 1610 through a homemade telescope by Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei.
