- Ganymede is the largest of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter - indeed the largest moon of any known planet, bigger even than Mercury. Its surface is a mixture of ice, fractures and craters.
- Europa is one of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter, and the second closest to the planet (after Io). Its surface is a shell of fractured ice but very few craters.
- Ceres, illustration. Ceres is a dwarf planet, the only one that orbits in the asteroid belt. It is also an asteroid, the largest one known, and the first to be discovered, in 1801. The surface of Ceres is heavily cratered due to impacts from meteorites. It orbits the Sun at an average distance of 2.76 astronomical units (AU), and has a mean radius of 473 km - large enough for it to be spherical. I

- Ice plumes on Europa. Europa is the smallest of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter, and the second closest to the planet. Its surface is icy and relatively smooth. Impacting meteorites cause melting of the surface, allowing the water to smooth out before re-freezing. There is some evidence of large-scale movements of the ice, possibly supported by a liquid mantle and driven by thermal processes wi
- Callisto is one of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter, and the farthest one from the planet. Its surface is the most heavily cratered in the known Solar System.
