Time-lapse of Jupiter’s three moon transit

These new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope images capture a rare occurrence as three of Jupiter’s largest moons parade across the giant gas planet’s banded face.

Hubble took a string of images of the event which are stitched together to show the three satellites — Europa, Callisto and Io — in action in this time-lapse video.
