Earth's Moon vs. Ganymede - This animation puts Earth's moon next to Jupiters moon Ganymede, the largest in the solar system. It begins with a brief view of the lunar orbit around Earth. Then pauses the orbital motion to show Ganymede beside the moon. Finally, the camera flys through the Jovian system to show all four Galilean satellites orbting around Jupiter.
