The NASA Earth Observatory is currently showcasing a stunning image – two volcanoes erupting simultaneously on the far-eastern Russian peninsula of Kamchatka. The two are Bezmianny (bottom) and Kliuchevskoi (top). This false-colour image was captured by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA’s Terra satellite on 13 February 2010.

The Russian news agency RIA-Novosti reports that new cameras are to be installed to monitor Kliuchevskoi, Bezymianny and Shiveluch volcanoes in the north of the Kamchatka peninsula. Their images will be made available online. Apparently two new high-resolution cameras are to be installed that will update their images every minute (presumably one of the cameras will monitor both Kliuchevskoi and Bezymianny, which are near neighbours).
In a further illustration of the mass media’s firm belief that to illustrate a story about a volcano, a picture of any random volcano will do, the RIA-Novosti story features a photograph of Chaitén volcano in southern Chile.
