The red dot is a volcano on the moon's surface and the blue cloud is the volcano's emissions


Thought this was really an amazing capture. Even though Jupiter and Io are lightyears away, to be able to see a volcanic eruption somewhere else besides Earth is awesome.

Hope the ATS Community enjoys.

I love the pic and it is a killer one at that,

You might want to edit your post a little.




Even though Jupiter and Io are thousands of lightyears away, to be able to see a volcanic eruption somewhere else besides Earth is awesome



The answer to “how far is Jupiter from Earth” can have a different answer every day of the year. The planets both travel in their elliptical orbits getting closer then farther apart. When Earth and Jupiter are at their closest to each other they are 628,743,036 million km apart. At their most distant from each other they are 928,081,020 million km apart. In astronomical units the distance varies from 4.2 AU to 6.2 AU.

Still a killer pic though.

Very nice picture. It's a little too large to see on my monitor so I took the liberty of cropping it so it all fits without scrolling.

Thank you verrry much for doing that. I tried too but to no success.


If a moderator wouldn't mind resizing the image, im sure it will allow the thread title to be easier to view.
