AN ERUPTION ON IO AS JUPITER LOOMS Photograph by NASA This montage of images of Jupiter and its volcanic moon Io, was taken by the New Horizons spacecraft’s flyby in early 2007. The Jupiter image is an infrared color composite taken by the spacecraft’s near-infrared imaging spectrometer on Feb. 28, 2007.

Very Pretty !!! Sheldon probably has this on his bedroom wall :)

Jupiter and Its Moons Photograph courtesy NASA This family portrait, a composite of the Jovian system, includes the edge of Jupiter (with the Great Red Spot visible) and Jupiter's four largest moons, known as the Galilean satellites. From top to bottom are Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. The smallest of these four moons, Europa is about the size of Earth's moon.

April 20, 1999: While hunting for volcanic plumes on Io, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured these images of the volatile moon sweeping across the giant face of Jupiter

Jupiter has 64 moons, and from top to bottom, the moons shown are Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

Io: Moon Over Jupiter (Apr 8 2012) Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA How big is Jupiter's moon Io? The most volcanic body in the Solar System, Io (usually pronounced "EYE-oh";) is 3,600 kilometers in diameter, about the size of planet Earth's single large natural satellite. Gliding past Jupiter at the turn of the millennium, the Cassini spacecraft captured this awe inspiring view of active Io with the largest gas giant as a backdrop (...) #astronomy

Jupiter, if it were as close as the moon

Io’s interior is composed of molten iron sulphide, and the surface is a crust of sulfur and silicon.  Io has more than 400 active volcanoes, which can eject lava plumes more than 500 kilometers above the surface.
