Moons around the Earth
We have been not lucky about Earth's satellites... the only moon we have is just a small rock without any atmosphere, water, methane, lakes, volcanos, etc. while, almost all the most interesting moons orbit around Jupiter and Saturn.
Maybe someday we will go around Jupiter and Saturn, land on their moons and explore them... but... just imagine if some of their moons would be OUR satellites... and that we can see them every day while the Earth runs... well, here you can see the image of the "new moons" (from Space) in a Flash animation.
left to right... Europa, Io, Ganymede, our
Moon, Enceladus and Callisto.
second (static) image has only four moons, but seen from Earth in
the sky of a city.
