Io volcanic eruption captured with the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) This Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) image was acquired on 21 December 2018 at 12:30 UTC, while Io was in Jupiter's shadow. The instrument reveals very high temperatures at the location of a volcanic eruption on Io, and the warm glow of lots of other volcanic throats. NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/INAF
