Shortly after releasing that book, Galileo continued his astronomical studies and came across a huge discovery. He was able to show that the Copernican motion of the moon around the Earth was indeed true and that other objects in the sky did not Reviews: 2.

Galileo trained his telescope on the Jupiter and found that it has four large moons orbiting around it. These moons are Europe, Gnomes, 10 and Cellist.
