This picture is a composite of a black and white near infrared image of Jupiter and its satellite Io and a color image of Io at shorter wavelengths taken at almost the same time on March 5, 1994. These are the first images of a giant
planet or its satellites taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) since the repair mission in December 1993.
