A montage of the PJ47 JunoCam images of Io. The images are enlarged by a factor of 5 relative to the original data. One of the images was obtained with a relatively long exposure time, causing parts of the image to become overexposed/saturated. The color balance is preliminary but hopefully this is not very far from Io's real color. The viewing geometry is also shown using computer generated images that include a latitude/longitude grid. They are based on a Voyager/Galileo map of Io.
