I was gazing through my binoculars at Jupiter last night and noticed 3 (maybe 4) tiny dots in line with it. A first I thought they might have been background stars but quickly realised their colour was similar to that of Jupiter and their brightness was larger than expected considering their size. As a result, I'm pretty certain I was looking at Jupiter's moons.
Presumably, I was seeing the largest of its moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto). They were far too tiny to see any details, obviously, but would it have been only those moons I could see? I assume the rest are too small. And is seeing those 4 moons as tiny bright dots through my 7x50s feasible?
