Independent space research agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared a first ever photo of North Pole of Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter.

The official account of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory division took to twitter and posted the photo and wrote, “For the first time ever, @NASAJuno imaged the north pole of the largest moon in the solar system: Jupiter’s moon Ganymede.”

The photo went viral over the micro blogging website and received over 5.3k likes and 1k comments.

A curious Twitter user asked NASA, “How many moons does Jupiter has?”. To which the original poster replied, “There are 79 Jovian moons. Ganymede consists primarily of water ice. Its composition contains fundamental clues for understanding the evolution of those Jovian moons from the time of their formation to today.”

Here are some of the responses:
