Two Moons Theory
Two sulfurous eruptions are visible on Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io in this color composite image from the robotic Galileo spacecraft that orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003.  At the image top, over Io's limb, a bluish plume rises about 140 kilometers above the surface of a volcanic caldera known as Pillan Patera.  In the image middle, near the night/day shadow line, the ring shaped Prometheus plume is seen rising about 75 kilometers above Io while casting a shadow below the volcanic vent.  Named for the Greek god who gave mortals fire, the Prometheus plume is visible in every image ever made of the region dating back to the Voyager flybys of 1979 - presenting the possibility that this plume has been continuously active for at least 18 years.  The above digitally sharpened image of Io was originally recorded in 1997 from a distance of about 600,000 kilometers.  Recent analyses of Galileo data has  uncovered evidence of a magma ocean  beneath Io's surface.

The strangest moon in the  Solar System is bright yellow.    This  picture,  an attempt to show how Io would appear in the “true colors” perceptible to the average human eye, was taken in 1999 July by the  Galileo spacecraft that orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003.    Io’s colors derive from  sulfur and molten  silicate rock.    The unusual surface of Io is kept very young by its system of  active volcanoes.    The intense  tidal gravity of  Jupiter stretches   Io and damps wobbles caused by Jupiter’s other  Galilean moons.    The resulting  friction greatly heats  Io's interior, causing   molten rock to explode through the surface.    Io’s volcanoes are so active that they are effectively turning the  whole moon inside out.    Some of  Io's volcanic lava is so hot it   glows in the dark.
