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.
