II believe that these series of images was the one where Linda Moribito noticed the faint eruptive plume from Pele and discovered Io's volcanic activity.


Io's activity was detected in an optical navigation long exposure image taken after the flyby (and thus showing the nightside of Io)

Ah, thanks for the correction. I guess that makes this a pre-discovery observation then. I'm a bit amazed it wasn't noticed earlier, then!
