Description:

This color composite of Io was acquired by Galileo during its sixth orbit (E6) of Jupiter as part of a sequence of images designed to monitor changes in the surface color due to volcanic activity. Two prominent features in this hemisphere are Pele (the big red ring) and Loki (the dark horseshoe shaped feature). Amaterasu Patera, the dark spot north of Loki, has darkened since G1. The new deposits at Ra Patera (below Loki) have faded in appearance since the images taken eight months earlier during Galileo's first orbit (G1). (
