Image Details:

We had fairly heavy rain all day (24 Sept) so I wasn't expecting to be able to see the Jupiter/Moon conjunction but was pleasantly surprised when the clouds cleared out for a few hours. It would have been nice if Jupiter was a little closer but I was happy to catch the conjunction. All four Galilean moons were visible. I brightened them up just a bit in photoshop elements so they would be easier to see in a photo that you can't zoom in on. From left to right, the moons are Callisto, Ganymede, Europa and just to Jupiter's right is Io.
