In the winter of 1610, Galileo Galilei peered deep into the cosmos and found 4 celestial bodies orbiting the gas giant Jupiter. Judging by their patterns and consistency, he determined that they were moons. Of the 67+ moons orbiting this planet, these are the largest and most well-known. Because of his discovery, we call them the "Galilean Moons." This lovely silver tone hair pin features these beloved 4 Galilean Moons of Jupiter - Europa, Io, Ganymede, and Callisto. A beautiful and unique cosmic gift for any teacher, science fashionista, fan of astronomy, stargazer, bridal party, little girl interested in STEM, and more! Looks great with this jewelry set.
