Soufriere Hills volcano, Montserrat, 30 December 2008 (NASA MODIS image)

NASA’s MODIS image of the day for today, 5 January 2009, is an image of Soufrière Hills volcano in Montserrat captured by the Terra satellite on 30 December 2008. The image shows a thick plume being erupted by the volcano and blowing away to the south-west across the Caribbean. As always with the NASA MODIS website, the image is available in different resolutions and has an informative commentary. (Image credit: Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA GSFC.)
