Io is Jupiter's innermost moon. It was discovered by Galilo Galilei in 1610. It has a diameter of 3643 KM, slightly larger than our own moon that has a diameter of 3475KM. Io whips around Jupiter in a bit less than two days. I wasn't looking for a transit but as luck would have it, last night at about 11PM local, (5AM UT on the 4th of July) I noticed a dark spot as I was capturing.
