JupSat Proprovides a range of information on Jupiter and graphically displays the planet (including its Great Red Spot) and the positions of its four main satellites, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto (in real time) and their shadows.

Here is a list of the features in the software:

* Calculates and displays the positions of Jupiter's four main (Galilean) moons - Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto for any date and time
* Displays side-on and plan views of Jovian system
* The display can be changed to support the view as seen through different optical configurations
* The position of the Great Red Spot is shown for the selected time and date
* Shadows of the satellites are displayed crossing Jupiter's disk
* The displays can be animated to show the movement of the satellites, their shadows and the Great Red Spot
* The displays can be zoomed so as to see satellite phenomena in greater detail
* Times of Great Red Spot transits are calculated for the selected month
* A diagram of the satellite tracks for the selected month can be viewed
* Times of satellite phenomena (Transits, occultations, etc.) are calculted for the selected date
* Compass directions show the orientation of Jupiter and its satellites depending on what hemisphere you live in and what optical configuration you have selected
* View rotating maps of each of the four satellites
* Displays the Rise, Transit and Set times of Jupiter for your location so you can make the most of your observing opportunities
* Displays the position of Jupiter (in RA/Dec and Alt/Az) along with its magnitude and distance amongst other data
* Numeric distances (in Jupiter radii) for each of the satellites are displayed
* Data for satellites that are transiting or being occulted by Jupiter are displayed in different colours for easy identification
