About this image

Not an impressive sight in the Northern hemisphere at the moment due to the low altitudes, only 16 degrees above the horizon at the moment from my location. We'll have to wait until 2024/25 to see Jupiter reasonably high in the skies and around 2027/28 before we see Saturn in a favourable position. Sounds like a good excuse for a holiday on the equator!

Ganymede is visible to the top left.
