This amazing looking picture, is an image of one of the four Galilean moons of the planet Jupiter created by the Galileo spacecraft. Io moon is the innermost Jupiter moon with a diameter of 2,263 miles (3,642 km) and it's the fourth largest moon in our Solar system.



The dark spot, left of center is the erupting volcano Prometheus. The pale yellow plains around the volcano are made of volcanic sulfur dioxide frost and the yellower regions contain a higher amount of sulfur.
