Hot on the heels of the last Chaitén image featured by the NASA Earth Observatory comes this close-up view of the Chaitén lava domes, captured by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) aboard the Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite on 30 September 2009. In this new image the plume is blowing away to the south, revealing the northern part of the dome complex which was obscured in the earlier image (detail shown below).
