This is one of the new images of Ganymede, taken by the JunoCam of the Juno probe.

It is the largest natural satellite in the Solar System.

And now a NASA probe has obtained the closest images of this moon that have so far been achieved.

It is about Ganymede, one of the four moons of Jupiter that Galileo Galilei discovered in 1610.

The Juno probe managed to get close to 1.000 km Ganymede, the closest any ship has been to this giant in more than 20 years.
