The Raikoke Volcano, dormant for a very long time, has awoken from its slumber. Before that, the most recent previous eruption was recorded in 1778, making the photo above a once-in-a-lifetime sight. It then went silent for almost 100 years, until, on June 22, Raikoke spewed forth a blast of ash and volcanic glass so powerful it could be seen from space.
As reported by "FACTS", in early June, Indonesia's North Sumatra erupted volcano - woke up mount Sinabung (Sinabung).
Several satellites, along with astronauts on the ISS, saw the thick plume rise and eventually stream east as it was pulled into a storm's circulation.
Astronauts aboard the ISS captured this frame as a volcanic plume rose in a narrow column before spreading into an umbrella shape. "That is the area where the density of the plume and the surrounding air equalize and the plume stops rising", said NASA's Earth Observatory.
In a press release, volcanologist Simon Carn from Michigan Tech commented, "What a spectacular image". The ring of clouds at the base of the column is probably water vapor. "Raikoke is a small island and flows likely entered the water", says Carn. The Tokyo and Anchorage Volcanic Ash Advisory Centers have thus been tracking the plume and issuing notices to aviators, according to NASA.
A third image (below), an oblique, composite view based on data from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on Suomi NPP, shows the plume a few hours later. Ash contains fragments of rock and volcanic glass that could pose hazards. "The persistence of large SO2 amounts over the last two days also indicates stratospheric injection", he said in the statement.
