Ganymede and Io

This image shows a crescent of the Jovian moons Ganymede (larger) and Io (smaller) from the Galileo spacecraft.  The color is an overlay using data from other orbits.

I just want to say your skillful processing of these old and not-so-old image data has given these pictures new life. I've been following your work for the past couple of years, and have been been very impressed with the reslts. The Venus pictures were particularly impressive, as were your work on different outer solar system moons. I have been interested in planets since I was 9 or 10 (I'm 59 now) and one of my greatest pleasures has been seeing the solar system revealed through the amazing robot spacecraft sent these past 40 years. Your processed images have added to that pleasure. Thanks for all the posts.
