Description

JupiterMoons is your essential guide to observing the king of planets whenever Jupiter reigns over the night sky. Sky & Telescope’s app helps you locate Jupiter’s four largest moons and time transits of the Great Red Spot with an easy-to-use interface. (The moons’ orbits are shown to scale with respect to Jupiter.) Plus, learn more about what makes these fascinating solar system denizens tick.
