Just a minor correction; I think the Discovery article states that you will be able see 4 of Jupiter's moons with binoculars. For those who weren't aware of it, Jupiter has at least 50 named moons and 12 provisional moons as stated at the following NASA site, check it out.

Just wondering for those people stopping by:

Someone on YouTube is attempting to use their night-vision binoculars to see the moons.
Would that work, considering the range? Seems kind of silly........

I don't know if you need night-vision binoculars, but you can see Jupiter's four major moons (Ganymede, Callisto, Io, and Europa) with good binoculars. I have 20X binoculars and can see Jupiter's moons. I'm not sure about 10X.

Whatever size you use, you probably need to rest them on something (or use a tripod) to keep the image from being too shaky.

Jupiter's moons can also be seen by zooming in with a camcorder, as seen here:
