Tvashtar on Io

The gorgeous plumes of Ionian volcanos rise into the sunlight on this image taken from the New Horizons spacecraft as it sped past Jupiter. The darkside of Io is seen via "Joveglow". Tvashtar and a seemingly asymmetric plume is at top.

Seen via tingilinde and many other sites -- see more images here
