The charts by Dominc Ford above show the changing positions of Jupiterâ€™s four largest Moons, which are easily visible through a pair of modest binoculars or a small telescope as a series of pinpoints of light around Jupiter.
- The east-west position of each moon relative to Jupiter is shown by a coloured line.
- The planetâ€™s disk is represented by the grey strip that runs down the centre of each column, which the moons past in front of when travelling from east to west (left to right), and behind when travelling from west to east (right to left).
