Does anyone have the capability of simulating the view of Jupiter from Galileo on October 9, 1997 at about 12:30 UT and on October 10, 1997 at about 4:00 UT with a view wide enough to show where hte moons are? Solar System simulator no longer seems to have Galileo, and the only simulation ability I have does not include the moons.

Thanks in advance,

Ted

And here's the view using Starry Night Pro (I turned on the equatorial grid on Jupiter so you could see it, otherwise, you wouldn't):

Seems to be pretty much in agreement with djellison's.
