Volcanic Eruption on Io.

Tvashtar is a volcano on Io, one of Jupiter’s moons. The New Horizons space probe captured five frames of an eruption, which became the first "movie" of an otherworldly eruption. The plume in the image reaches 200 miles above the surface. http://pluto.jhuapl.edu/gallery/missionPhotos/pages/051407.html -via Metafilter
