Asked in Planet Venus, Stars
What planet is in the eastern sky just after sunset in January 2013?
You are seeing Jupiter, which is now in Taurus, near the Pleiades and Aldebaran. Taurus is up all night in the winter, so you can see Jupiter in the east after sunset and all night long as Taurus moves across the winter night sky. Just before sunrise, if you have a flat horizon, you'll see Jupiter in the west as it is about to set with Taurus.
Asked in Planet Jupiter
Jupiter has four bright moons that can be seen by the telescope why can you see them?
You can basically see them for the same reasons that you see Jupiter itself and our Moon, namely because they reflect light towards us. As they are much smaller than Jupiter, they reflect less light so it is more difficult to see them. You can see Jupiter with the naked eye, but with a good telescope you can also see its moons, spread out in a line around it.
Asked in Ganymede
Why is ganymede hidden?
Ganymede isn't "hidden"; it is just too close to Jupiter to see it without a telescope. When Galileo pointed his telescope at Jupiter, he was astonished to find four other small things that appeared to stay close to Jupiter. They were named Ganymede, Callisto, Europa and Io, and are sometimes called the "Galilean moons". Day by day, you can see them orbiting Jupiter, their positions different each day.
