PreMortem: Why is Earth's moon "The Moon" but all other planets moons are named?
Mikey1969: The only thing I don't understand about this is why Venus is the only one casting light. Obviously if Jupiter were that big and close, it would light things up more than the moon currently does, but the sky is the same illumination in every picture except Venus'. It's like the guy forgot that part in all pof the other pics.
threedingers: Tr0mBoNe: What about the moons of those new moons? How big would Io or Titan be?Ganymede and Titan are 5262km and 5150km in diameter respectively (vs. 3475km for the Moon), so they would look a little less than double the size of the moon, or about two finger widths held at arm's length.Callisto is next with a diameter of 4821km, then Io at 3643km. Io would appear pretty much exactly the same size as the Moon.
