Tvashtar, Io, Jupiter

Hello, had some time with not so many posts. I’ll write more stuff soon, including something that is slightly offtopic for a spaceflight blog. 🙂

But in the mean time, the newest Carnival of Space had a nice link to a fine blog which had a great picture (beware it’s full size on the front page) that New Horizons snapped of Io in front of Jupiter. Also shows the glow of the Volcano Tvashtar in the dark. We, who can view all this, are living in wonderful times.

I made a resized, rotated and recropped desktop version for 1600 x 1200 resolution which still has most of the details (click to open):
Jupiter with Io,

I thank for the links  my daily RSS read, Centauri Dreams.
