Massive months-long volcanic eruption sends Jupiter’s moon Io reeling

A massive volcanic eruption has been observed from Jupiter’s moon Io. The outburst was observed in the fall of 2022 using the Io Input/Output Observatory (IoIO) by Planetary Science Institute (PSI) senior scientist Jeff Morgenthaler.

One of Jupiter’s largest moons, Io is considered the most volcanic body in the solar system with its extreme conditions and annual eruptions of volcanism caused by the enormous gravitational influence of its parent planet.
