Eruption of Raung Volcano #NASA

On July 12, 2015, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured a natural-color view (top) of a plume of ash and volcanic gases trailing away from Raung volcano on the Indonesian island of Java. The image has a resolution of roughly 250 meters per pixel. One day earlier, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 caught a closer view (about 25 meters per pixel) glimpse of the summit caldera of Raung amidst some afternoon cloud cover and a plume streaming southeast.
