A Gas Giant and three moons
The Jovian system is perhaps one of the most elaborate in the solar system. Jupiter is easy to spot in the sky. It is very bright and appears noticeably larger than any of the other objects in the night sky, save the moon.
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to gaze upon Jupiter through a telescope for the first time. (There was a busker in Southbank). That night, I got a very good look at the gas giant with its many bands, great red spot, and four major moons.
A couple of nights ago, I decided to try to photograph it, using my Sony A6000 with a 55-210mm lens (effectively, a 315mm lens). What I got were Jupiter, and three moons. I am guessing that the fourth was either behind the planet, or in front of it and obscured by its brightness.
I will never stop wondering about what is out there every time I gaze at the night sky! #astrophotography #jupiter #jovian #solarsystem #nasa #nightsky #nightscapes #JupiterAscending
