nbcnews This visible-light image, captured on Jan. 24 by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3, shows three of Jupiter's largest moons backdropped by the giant planet's banded face. Europa has entered the frame at lower left with slower-moving Callisto above and to the right of it. The moon Io, which orbits significantly closer to Jupiter, is approaching the eastern limb of the planet. A three-moon transit like this one is visible from Earth only once or twice a decade, astronomers say.

nbcnews A former circus lion named "King" lays sedated as a veterinarian performs dental surgery, inside a temporary refuge for the lion on the outskirts of #Lima, #Peru. Vets from the Animal Defenders International (ADI) are operating on lions and monkeys rescued from traveling circuses in Peru and Bolivia. According to the vets, King was removed from a circus in Nov. 2014 and is unable to chew his food properly because most of his teeth had been pulled out, or partially pulled out by his circus owners. It is illegal to use wild animals in circuses in Peru.

nbcnews An astronomical display takes place in the cloudless skies over La Silla's telescopes in Chile's Atacama desert in an image released by the European Southern Observatory on Jan. 26.

In a scene humming with activity, the major players captured here are Comet Lovejoy, glowing green in the center of the image; the Pleiades above and to the right; and the California Nebula, providing some contrast in the form of a red arc of gas directly to the right of Lovejoy.

A meteor adds its own streak of light to the scene, seeming to plunge into the hazy pool of green light collecting along the horizon.
