Moonday, Moonday

I wrote about Europa two weeks ago and Io last week. When I took an informal poll on various social networks, I found enough interest in Solar System moons that I think I’ll make it a regular feature. We’ll see how long I keep it up, but there are certainly enough moons out there, including several that deserve multiple posts.

Comparison of the sizes of Io and Europa to Earth and its Moon. Note that Io is slightly larger than the Moon, while Europa is slightly smaller. (Jupiter would not fit on this picture without dwarfing everything too much!)

I was going to write more today, but I’m experiencing a bout of writer’s block again. Enjoy the size comparison image above of the two moons I previously wrote about, and I’ll try to get something real for you tomorrow.
