Planetshine on Io
The planetshine from Jupiter on Io in this Galileo I32 global view was enough to slightly light up Io's nighttime hemisphere. This image has been enhanced to emphasize the planetshine area. Unfortunately, subtle details in this area are not distinguishable due to Galileo SSI image compression.
