The Far Reaches – Jupiter and Saturn

I took a clear picture of Jupiter and its four moons at dawn yesterday, and wanted to share five favorites of these distant planets. Jupiter is ~525M mi/ 845M km away, and Saturn is ~800M mi/1.3B km distant. Please enjoy!

  1. Wow amazing pictures!
    I was always interested in universe and everything about it, so it’s nice to see “fresh” pictures of these planets and their moons!
