International Space Station and Jupiter

A spectacular sight in the pre-dawn eastern skies this morning was the ISS drifting underneath the largest planet in the Solar System. At the moment Jupiter is really bright and, even with a birding scope, you can see the four Galilean satellites Ganymede, Io, Europa and Callisto, as well as an equatorial cloud belt if you're lucky enough to live in a dark sky region like East Norfolk. Definitely worth a look!
