Unfortunately, however, the news coming out of the Middle East is that Iran is developing a long-range loafer." --David Letterman

provided by NASA Thursday Dec. 18, 2008 the Hubble Space Telescope has caught
Jupiter's moon Ganymede playing a game of 'peek-a-boo.' In this crisp Hubble
image, Ganymede is shown just before it ducks behind the giant planet. Ganymede
completes an orbit around Jupiter every seven days. Because Ganymede's orbit is
tilted nearly edge-on to Earth, it routinely can be seen passing in front of and
disappearing behind its giant host, only to reemerge later. Composed of rock and
ice, Ganymede is the largest moon in our solar system. It is even larger than
the planet Mercury. But Ganymede looks like a dirty snowball next to Jupiter,
the largest planet in our solar system. This color photo was made from three
images taken on April 9, 2007.
I wish you all a peaceful weekend.
