    The first moon, Io, is the closest to Jupiter of the Jovian moons, however, it is Jupiter’s fifth closest moon orbiting at roughly 262,000mi. Though it is slightly larger than our own moon, for Jupiter is it only the third largest. Ganymede, Io, and Europa are in orbital resonance with Jupiter, and this causes their orbits to become elliptical.

Using a 10-inch diameter telescope we were lucky enough to have a mostly clear sky to view in this order: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon. Viewing these celestial bodies in person is truly one of the most exciting and core tenets of astronomy. With our telescope we were able to see firsthand and notice some of the distinct characteristics of the different…
