UVa Astronomy News Picture

Picture of the Month

The Large Binocular Telescope image of Loki Patera (orange), a lava lake on Jupiter's moon Io, laid over a Voyager image of the volcanic depression. The infrared emission (in orange color) appears spread out in the north-south direction due to the telescope point-spread function; it is mainly localized to the southern corners of the lake. Check out this article about how UVA was involved in the capture of such a unique image! Credit: LBTO-NASA
