Dazzling Io

I've been posting some wonderful pictures of Saturn and its satellites taken by the Cassini spacecraft, but I don't want to forget about Jupiter. And I don't have to now that the New Horizons probe is on its way to Pluto and taking some pictures of the Jovian system as it passes. There are some good ones, like this photograph of the moon Io, bedecked with a volcanic plume.

Incredible. Read more about this picture here.
