Io, with Pillan eruption deposits This mosaic of images from Galileo orbit C10 acquired on September 18 and 19, 1997 by the Solid-State Imaging Experiment (SSI) show the aftereffects of eruptions at Pillan during the summer of 1997 at a resolution of 5 kilometers per pixel. The dark pyroclastic deposits from the Pillan eruption are seen to the northwest of Pele (the volcano at the center of the ring of red material at lower left).
