The position of the Jupiter's Galilean Moons this morning in the skies here in Singapore. The Galilean moons (or Galilean satellites) are the four largest moons of Jupiter and first seen by Galileo Galilei in December 1609 or January 1610, and recognized by him as satellites of Jupiter in March 1610. It is amazing to see it with my point and shoot camera without the aid of any additional equipment. How technology has evolved over the years to make this possible!
