A view from Europa's surface - artist conception

An artist’s conception of the Sun as seen from Europa, the smallest of the four Galilean moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto) orbiting Jupiter. They were first seen by Galileo Galilei in January 1610 and recognized by him as satellites of Jupiter in March 1610. They were the first objects found to orbit another planet.
