These images, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, reveal changes in Jupiter's auroral emissions and how small auroral spots just outside the emission rings are linked to the planet's volcanic moon, Io.

The images represent the most sensitive and sharply-detailed views ever taken of Jovian auroras.
