That's a MOON of Jupiter. Making an eclipse. On Jupiter. That I'm capturing "from space" 367 MILLION miles away. How could someone NOT become absolutely addicted to this hobby?

insane that you can do this
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Awesome pic and I'm not asking this to be a jerk, but with the number of moons jupiter has, isn't there pretty much always an eclipse (or several) on jupiter? Nice work, fo realz.

you need to go to the red centre of australia zero light pollution minimal atmospheric interference the milky way there is like a galactic streak of fireworks
 
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Well the insane price of the equipment needed is one reason but I sure love seeing your photos. 馃槣
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
It looks like it's right next to it but I googled and the distance from Ganymede to Jupiter is 665,000 mi while the diameter of Jupiter is only 87,000 mi
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Same way I lost interest in WWE when I was 9, I realised it was all fake
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
I can tell it's Ganymede at a glance. That's how frikkin' awesome a photo this is. Great job!
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Every wondered what it would be like to stand on one of those moons, with the giant as fook Jupiter looming overhead for a large part of the day?
 
Os jupterianos putos da vida pq ta nublado no condado q eles moram
 
GM g眉nayd谋n. Hahaha son c眉mledeki soruya imza at谋yorum =)
 
YOU IDIOTS
THATS NOT A MOON OR AN ECLIPSE

ITS SO MUCH WORSE pic.twitter.com/lwxJxv2Zre
 
Jupiter going 鈥榳ell Bonnies, that鈥檚 what I think of your total eclipse of your heart!鈥
 
?????? omg a shadow we don鈥檛 have those here
 
So what we鈥檙e actually seeing here is the hole that the moon left when it lifted away from Jupiter, very rare sight to see

To witness a planet through a telescope is like seeing a famous movie star in person for the first time.

I love all things astronomy but economy and living in a city make an investment impossible.

Your passion is precisely why I have the M81 galaxy tattooed to my arm. pic.twitter.com/TGifkQEu4W
 
Do you think they have berserk in space

I just took @elakdawalla鈥檚 course on TPS to learn how to start image processing. These images are too cool!!
 
Tiny moon obsessed with giant girlfriend 5300 times her size
 
This picture is pure dope.
Mad props, Andrew馃憤馃従

I think one reason is humans do not have the ability to comprehend these numbers. I think it鈥檚 as small as 100,000 that the brain can even barely compute. Let alone these numbers. After so many it becomes all the same. Still freakin wild and maybe the coolest stuff there is.
 
It鈥檚 wild that red spot is a storm that is larger than the planet Earth.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
It's freaking amazing I'I agree.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
I never get tired of the Universe. I don't have a telescope but I have very good binoculars that I use to view the stars, planets and the moon. Your photos are truly amazing!馃獝馃寱
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
I thought a piece just fell out.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
it is a really cool picture.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Also that moon is roughly the size of earth.
 
Space and our solar system has always been something that has always fascinated me and grabbed my attention. This is INCREDIBLE!
 
Anyone else automatically hear a 鈥減op鈥 sound when they saw this image?
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Absolutely fucking stunning!!

I extremely have a crush on what u doing, just keep do what u love.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
That is a GREAT photo.

I dont have 2rqcks for a telescope
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Saw this once with an 8 inch reflector in my LA backyard. Thank you Thomas Cave.
 
Absolutley STUNNING! People dont usually get the enormousness if it!

U are watching something size of 1,300 Earths

1300!!!!!
 
I need a telescope 馃ス. A part of me has always wanted to see "beyond" and since I couldn't become an astronaut or astrophysicist, this seems like the next best thing.
 
 
That's amazing...
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Reminds me of a scene in Season 3 Love Death + Robots titled "The very pulse of the Machine". The exact same shot before the moon glows-up. 馃
 
I dunno.

I think you just plucked a bit of Jupiter out and left a hole. Put it back!
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
 
All I can think of is how far more advanced civilizations than us are watching us with street level accuracy while laughing at our primitive tech 馃槀
 
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
As always, it really looks deceptively close to the planet (especially with the shadow)鈥 kind of amazing
 
 
 
 
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
Absolutely incredible!!!! But...HOW does that moon not get pulled in by the planet's insane gravity??
 
hmm let me think about it
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
I feel a bit guilty about admiring the moons of Jupiter through my binoculars. I feel like I've been cheating on our moon, but who can resist Europa's liquid oceans and potential extraterrestrial life?
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
That is freaking awesome!
 
I went to Jupiter once.
I got more stupider.
 
 
 
 
 
Looks like something on a slide in the biology dept #ilovescience #science

It's sad the days of pure curiosity are almost lost. The once great promise of the information age and internet seem to be irretrievably perverted. Total cultural decay . This at least gives me some hope. Great shot 馃憤

How expensive is it to get into?
 
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
I thought a portion of Jupiter was escaping. Moon/eclipse makes more sense. Very cool either way.
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
saw this when you posted yesterday. jaw still sropped pic.twitter.com/b2ZoO2DPiK
 
In reply to @AJamesMcCarthy
For starters, its expensive
