" [...] 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 was one of the natural satellites orbiting Jupiter. It was mostly covered with ice. It was studied in Astronomy classes, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]
