" [...] I think you must have misheard Professor Sinistra, Europa's covered in ice, not mice."
Hermione Granger correcting Harry Potter's essay about Jupiter's Moons[src]

Europa is one of Jupiter's moons. This natural satellite is covered in ice. It is studied in Astronomy class, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In the Muggle world, Europa was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei (and possibly independently by Simon Marius), and named after a mythical Phoenician noblewoman, Europa, who was courted by Zeus and became the queen of Crete.[2]
