This animation shows the newly-discovered water vapour plumes on Jupiter's moon Europa. This artist's impression uses actual Jupiter and Europa images in visible light. The Hubble ultraviolet images showing the faint emission from the water vapour plumes have been superimposed, respecting the size but not the brightness of the plumes.
