Galileo view of Io's Prometheus volcano This two-frame, three-color mosaic of Io's Prometheus volcano from Galileo's I27 orbit in February 2000 uses violet (in the blue channel), green (in the green channel), and IR-7560 (in the red channel) filters from the Solid State Imaging System (SSI). The mosaic has a resolution of 170 meters per pixel. The color banding is due to differences in image registration.
