(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Jupiter's moon Ganymede, the largest satellite in the solar system will be visible on Tuesday.

The PDO Planetarium is organising a special event to view this spectacle at its observation site at Jufainah in Amerat from 11pm till midnight.

''Though this is not a very rare celestial spectacle, the sighting of Ganymede on the last day of the year is interesting and on Tuesday it will be facing Earth.''

He added that the spectacle can be viewed with the help of a telescope.

''We expect many people including children to come, and I think the timing is very apt as enthusiasts can celebrate the New Year watching this spectacle in silence.''

Ganymede was discovered by Galileo in 1610, along with three other moons namely Io, Europa and Callisto. Though the planet has over 60 moons, these four are the biggest of all. <
