Io plumes near the terminator These false color images, composed of CB2 and BL1 filter images from the Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS), reveal two volcanic plumes near the terminator of Io on January 1st and 5th, 2001. The glow on Io's dark side is light scattered from Jupiter behind it. The images on the left are highly stretched versions of the images on the right in order to highlight the locations of the plumes.
