True-colour image taken bi the Galileo orbiter
Galileo spacecraft true-colour image o Io. The dark spot juist left o the center is the eruptin volcano Prometheus. The whitish plains on either side o it are coatit wi volcanically depositit sulfur dioxide frost, whauras the yellaer regions conteen a heicher proportion o sulfur.
