Io in True Colour

Yesterdays APOD was a beautiful image of Io as the human eye would see it. We are so used to seeing false-colour images from spacecraft that it is easy to forget that such a thing as the ‘true’ colour of an object exists. If you were to journey to the Jupiter system and look out of a window, Io would be quite stunning.
