Image Details:

This image of the Jupiter was shot from my Nikon camera without the aid of any telescope or additional equipment. After checking the alignment of the 4 Jupiter satellites(Galileon Moons), i realised there were only 3. To my amazement, i then realised that one of Jupiter's moon, the Io was in fact 'passing' infront of the giant planet. It was truly surprising that my camera could capture it despite the distance of Jupiter from Earth!
