English: Crop of larger image release to show Masubi change area: B-F: Comparison of New Horizons (NH) and earlier images of major surface changes discovered by New Horizons at Io’s volcanoe Masubi (45 degrees S, 57 degrees West). The scale bars are 200 kilometers long, and a is the solar phase angle. At Masubi, old lava flows seen by Voyager and Galileo (B) have been obscured at low phase angles (C) by deposits from two active plumes associated with a new 240-kilometer (150-mile) long dark lava flow, which is the longest lava flow known to have been erupted in the solar system since the discovery of Io volcanism in 1979.
