Seventy nine known moons orbit Jupiter. Four of the largest moons are known as the Galilean moons. In January 1610, Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei discovered them using his telescope. The four moons are Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, in order of distance from Jupiter.

Galileo’s discovery was pivotal point in the history of astronomy as his observation revealed that not all celestial bodies revolved around the Earth. Until that time, Earth was thought to be the center of the universe.

  1. Io - its distinctive feature is its volcanoes, making it the only celestial body in the solar system besides Earth to have volcanic activity.
  2. Europa - is one of the largest bodies in the solar system but the smallest of the Galilean satellites. Cracks and streaks cover its icy surface. It is among the brightest moons in the solar system. It is possible that an extensive ocean beneath the surface harbors life.
  3. Ganymede -  the only moon to have its own magnetic field.
  4. Callisto -  the most heavily cratered object in the solar system. Its landscape has essentially remained unchanged since its formation.
