Alright, so I've read many other people's riddles/WAIs...so, I figured I'd write one...this one may be very easy to some, so...we'll see how quickly it gets solved.

I used to be unknown
and a source of great fear
Now there is plenty of warning
for when I draw near.

Calipso and Europa
and Ganymede are three
And Galileo is another
Specific name for me

I am noticable, though silent,
and I keep to the shadows.
My beauty and my splendor
Two of Eight never knows.

I wear my mask always,
both by day and by night.
I cause many to stare
Whether in awe or in fright

I'm part of the occult
but don't believe in ghosts
I've been around forever
that's something I can boast.

What am I?

Doesn't quite fit everything in the riddle...however that was the guess that I figured most people would make...I'll make one adjustment to the riddle:

I used to be unknown
and a source of great fear
Now there is plenty of warning
for when I draw near.

Calipso and Europa
and Ganymede are three
And Galileo is the fourth
Specific name for me

I am noticable, though silent,
and I keep to the shadows.
My beauty and my splendor
Two of Eight never knows.

I wear my mask always,
both by day and by night.
I cause many to stare
Whether in awe or in fright

I'm part of the occult
but don't believe in ghosts
I've been around forever
that's something I can boast.
