Quick work from the NASA Earth Observatory team: they have posted an image of Mayon captured yesterday, 15 December 2009, by the Advanced Land Imager on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite. A plume is visible emerging from Mayon’s summit crater and blowing away to the west. The close proximity of the volcano to the city of Legazpi and surrounding settlements is clearly shown.
