Two Planets, Two Moons

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows two "moons" of Earth: the Moon and the International Space Station; as well as Jupiter. Not mentioned is another planet that is visible. Can you spot it?

Addendum: "Embigging" (what a word) the picture shows two for sure, possibly three, moons visible around Jupiter. Two are below, there is possibly one above (but it might be an "artifact", in other words, a blip in the digital picture, not a moon).
