G = Ganymede

Don't know why but I just always liked saying Ganymede. It's a fun word: Ganymede, ganymede, ganymede.

Ganymede is the largest of the Galilean moons orbiting Jupiter. Galileo recorded seeing the moon in 1610. The moon is named for the cup bearer of Zeus.

I took Astronomy in college because someone suggested I take it. He said later that he thought I would fail. But how I got there doesn't matter because I loved Astronomy, got an A, and took the next level with the sky observations.
