The Sun comes up so early these days, and the Moon and Jupiter are close by. Today I was able to photograph a fifth moon of Jupiter, something that I haven’t seen before. Please enjoy these two pictures from 0500 this morning!
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!

The sky has been so clear lately as the Summer season quickly dries out the land, creating fewer clouds. Even a half-moon casts so much light. The last photo is a video still of Jupiter and four of its moons from early this morning. Enjoy!
