Jupiter moons look tiny against huge gas

The largest planet in our solar system is Jupiter. The gas giant has roughly 79 naturally occurring satellites 

that orbit it regularly. It is occasionally visible in our sky as a bright light

Europa, two of its most significant moons, appear incredibly small in comparison to the giant.

The natural satellites orbit Jupiter like two tiny spheres, and scientists are still unsure whether 

of these bodies might contain components necessary for the emergence of life as we know it.

The orbital transit of the moons Europa and Io is depicted in a film created using data from the Cassini spacecraft

One of the natural satellites moves faster than the other, and Jupiter's colours can be seen in the distance.
