Eruption of Chaiten volcano, 24 February 2009 (NASA MODIS image).

At the NASA Earth Observatory a new image of Chaitén has been published (small version above). The image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite on 24 February 2009 and shows ash deposits from the 19 February dome collapse stretching south-eastwards across Patagonia.
