Ganymede is a Natural satellite of Jupiter and is the largest moon in the Solar system. Ganymede is in a 1:2:4 orbital resonance with Europa and Io.


The moon was discovered by Galileo when he pointed a telescope at Jupiter. Thus, Ganymede and the four other main moons of Jupiter are sometimes called the Galilean Moons.
