Go Back

Io and Amalthea Galileo acquired the images used in this three-filter (red, green, violet) color mosaic of Io and Amalthea with the Solid-State Imaging Experiment (SSI) during its E11 orbit on November 6, 1997. The images have a resolution of 10.3 km/pixel of Io's sub-jovian hemisphere. Amalthea was only captured by the red filter and therefore its color in this image is distorted.
