Caption: Jupiter from Europa, artwork. Europa is one of the moons of Jupiter (upper centre), a gas giant and the largest planet in the solar system. Europa's orbit is 600,000 kilometres above the outer layers of Jupiter. The surface of Europa is made of water ice. There are no large impact craters, as it is thought that meteorites make a crater which fills with liquid water and then freezes. This scene shows a more irregular area of Europa, with features such as ridges possibly caused by tidal flexing. Two other moons of Jupiter are also seen. Io is seen crossing the disc of Jupiter. One of the two outer moons (Ganymede and Callisto) is the dot to upper right of Jupiter.
