Io. Coloured Galileo spacecraft image of Io, the innermost of Jupiter's Galilean moons. Dark areas correspond to volcanic hot spots, & may be active lava flows. The red, orange & yellow colours come from various forms and compounds of sulphur which cover most of the surface. The white areas are probably sulphur dioxide 'frost'. The intense volcanic activity has resulted in mountains, layered plateaus and depressions. The side of Io seen here permanently faces away from Jupiter. This image was made by combining high-resolution data taken by Galileo's Solid State Imaging (CCD) instrument on November 6 1996 with low-resolution colour images acquired on 7 September 1996.
