Jupiter & Io
Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day (top) is a cool montage of Jupiter and its volcanic moon Io, created from New Horizons imagery (passing by for a little gravity boost on its way to Pluto). The other picture is one of my Orbiter screen shots of Io with Jupiter. I think it's pretty sweet even though it doesn't have an erupting volcano on the limb like the NASA picture. Many more Orbiter pix on Flickr.
