Here we have the planet Jupiter with 3 of its moons. The dark speck on Jupiter's surface is a transiting moon. Jupiter's great red spot, a massive storm that has lasted for hundreds of years, is clearly visible. Jupiter's reddish cloud bands can also be seen.The image was taken through a telescope in the backyard of my house in Saudi Arabia.
