NASA’s Earth Observatory has been following the Soufrière Hills eruption with a great collection of fascinating images since the volcano saw a resurgence of activity in the autumn of 2009. The latest image is a crystal-clear shot from the MODIS aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite, captured on 31 January 2010 (detail above), showing the light-grey ash cloud produced by the active Soufrière Hills lava dome swirling around Montserrat to the north and west. Recent activity has seen most of the island affected by ashfall, according to reports from the Montserrat Volcano Observatory.
