Great Shot: Saturn and Jupiter do the tango


From contributing photographer Glen Richardson: “The actual ‘Great Conjunction’ of Saturn and Jupiter is Dec. 21.  However, with potentially cloudy skies predicted, I took some photos tonight (Dec. 20) using a Nikon D500, 300mm prime lens with a 2:1 converter. Jupiter’s four Galilean moons and brightest from the upper left to lower right are Callisto, Ganymede, Io and Europa. The faint object is likely another moon or distant star in this photo.  Jupiter has 79 confirmed moons, as of 2020.” Thanks, Glen!
