The planet Venus (bottom) is seen close to planet Jupiter as a plane flies over Gdynia, Poland June 30, 2015. Venus and Jupiter are converging into a small area of the Earth's sky at 1/3rd of a degree apart but in reality, they are around 670 million kilometers (416 million miles) apart in space.

Artist's impression shows Jupiter-sized planet passing in front of its parent star
An artist's impression shows a Jupiter-sized planet passing in front of its parent star. Such events are called transits. When the planet transits the star, the star's apparent brightness drops by a few percent for a short period. Through this technique, astronomers can use the Hubble Space Telescope to search for planets across the galaxy by measuring periodic changes in a star's luminosity. The first class of exoplanets found by this technique are the so-called "hot Jupiters," which are so close to their stars they complete an orbit within days, or even hours.

After eight years orbiting Jupiter, NASA's Galileo space probe will end
its long mission on September 21, 2003 by plunging down through the
jovian cloud tops and smashing into the giant planet - collecting data
as it goes. Low on propellant and six years past its original end date,
Galileo has set a collision course with Jupiter to eliminate any
unwanted crash into the jovian moon Europa, officials at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement. This 'family portrait,' a
composite of the Jovian system, includes the edge of Jupiter with its
Great Red Spot, and Jupiter's four largest moons, known as the Galilean
satellites. From top to bottom, the moons shown are Io, Europa,
Ganymede and Callisto. REUTERS/JPL/NASA-Galileo-Handout EDITORIAL USE

The distances are deceiving. Europa (C), visible against Jupiter, is 600,000 kilometers (370,000 miles) above the planet's cloud tops. Callisto, at lower left, is nearly three times that distance from the cloud tops.

Ganymede is larger than the planets Mercury and Pluto and Saturn's largest moon, Titan. Both Ganymede and Titan have greater surface area than the entire Eurasian continent on our planet.

All three planets circling the star Upsilon Andromedae (identified on this computer-generated image as "upsAnd") are gas giants like Earth's big neighbour Jupiter, and not thought to be hospitable to life. However, an Earth-type planet might be a part of this system, one researcher said.
