Yesterday NASA’s Terra satellite passed over Nevado del Huila volcano in Colombia and captured this MODIS image which has just been speedily published by the NASA Earth Observatory. Grey ash emissions can be seen rising from the volcano’s summit and dispersing to the north-west. The image is accompanied by an informative caption by Robert Simmon giving the background on Huila’s recent activity (and referencing this blog, which is much appreciated).
