Telescope Takes a Close Look at a Lava Lake on Jupiter's Moon Io

New images of Jupiter's volcanic moon Io show "hotspots" happening in different spots on a volcanic lake. Even more surprising given the lake's small size: the images were taken from Earth.

By tracking the phases of six exoplanets, astronomers have tracked their daily weather cycles for the first time.  This is an artist's rendering of an exoplanet with cloudy mornings and clear, scorching afternoons, exhibiting a cycle of phase variations that occur as different portions of the planet are illuminated by its star, as seen from Earth.
