Analyze the brightness of the moons with the aperture tool.  Remember the order of brightness of the moons is Ganymede, Io, Europa and Callisto, brightest to dimmest. Then you will know which moon is which.

Combine image sets of Jupiter and its moons to determine direction of motion of the moons.  Or use one of the other methods to discover motion.  (Flipbook or draw lines connecting moon positions on a printout of this page.)

Sets of images on the hour from 0:00 to 9:00 UT were taken using the Yerkes 24 inch telescope. 

Download this set of images to combine and analyze using the HOU-IP software.
