Here you can see the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter is the brighter object and Saturn is fainter. You can kind of see Saturn’s rings, but the resolution is not good enough for a clear image. Looking at Jupiter, you can see the four Galilean moons. Starting at the upper left, I believe you see Calisto, Io, then Jupiter and then Ganymede and finally Europa. I wish I had a more powerful camera to get the rings of Saturn clearly. If you missed this conjunction, you will have to wait until 2040 for a repeat!
