Jupiter and Io, New Horizons image

Jupiter and Io. Montage of images of Jupiter (left) and its moon Io (right), obtained by the New Horizons spacecraft in February and March 2007 as it passed Jupiter on its way to Pluto. The image of Jupiter was obtained with its infrared spectrometer (LEISA). The different colours show high-altitude clouds (blue), and deeper clouds (red). The Great Red Spot (lower left) is blue and white. The Io image was obtained in approximate true colour with a long-range camera (LORRI) and a multispectral camera (MVIC). The red dot on the nightside of Io is an eruption of the Tvashtar volcano. The volcanic plume (blue) seen above the eruption is 330 kilometres high. Jupiter is the solar systems largest planet

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the majestic beauty of Jupiter and its moon Io, captured by the New Horizons spacecraft during its journey to Pluto in February and March 2007. The image on the left reveals Jupiter's awe-inspiring features through its infrared spectrometer (LEISA), displaying a mesmerizing array of colors. The high-altitude clouds appear in striking blue hues, while deeper clouds are depicted in vibrant red tones. Notably, the iconic Great Red Spot can be seen towards the lower left, adorned with shades of blue and white. On the right side of this montage lies Io, bathed in approximate true color thanks to a long-range camera (LORRI) and multispectral camera (MVIC). A crimson dot on Io's nightside signifies an eruption from the Tvashtar volcano, emanating a volcanic plume that soars an astonishing 330 kilometers into space. Jupiter itself stands as our solar system's largest planet, exuding an undeniable sense of grandeur. This extraordinary snapshot offers us a glimpse into both planetary science and volcanology as we marvel at these celestial wonders. It serves as a testament to human exploration and scientific progress in understanding our vast universe. Captured with precision by Science Photo Library's expertise, this photograph encapsulates the essence of deep space exploration while igniting our curiosity about what lies beyond our own world.
