Volcano Eruption Photos
This May 23, 2006, photo released by NASA shows the eruption of Cleveland Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska, as photographed by an Expedition 13 crew member on the International Space Station. The image captures the ash plume of the very short-lived eruption. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center)
In this June 16, 2010 satellite image provided by NASA, Papua New Guinea’s Manam Volcano releases a thin, faint plume, as clouds cluster at the volcano’s summit. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite took this image. The clouds may result from water vapor from the volcano, but may also have formed independent of volcanic activity. The volcanic plume appears as a thin, blue-gray veil extending toward the northwest over the Bismarck Sea. (AP Photo/NASA)
Seen here on on June 12, 2009 in the beginning stages of eruption is Sarychev volcano. This was the sixth eruption since 1946, making it one the busiest volcanoes on Russia's Kuril Islands. (Photo: NASA)
This image provided by NASA shows an image taken by a NASA MODIS satellite acquired at 1:15 a.m. EDT on May 22, 2011 shows the ash plume from the Grimsvotn volcano casts shadow to the west. The Grimsvotn volcano began erupting on Saturday, May 21 sending clouds of ash high into the air.
This satellite image taken on Monday Jan. 30, 2006, courtesy of MODIS Rapid Response Project at NASA/GSFC via the Alaska Volcano Observatory / U.S. Geological Survey, a steam and ash cloud from Augustine Volcano near Homer, Alaska, lower left, can be seen drifting toward the Kenai Peninsula, seen in the upper right. An unbroken plume of ash has been spewing from the uninhabited volcanic island 75 miles southwest of Homer, Alaska since Saturday with explosions thrusting particles almost five miles into the skies around south-central Alaska.

This photo of Shiveluch volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia was taken on September 7, 2010 by the Earth Observing-1 satellite. Three days earlier, ash plumes had risen as high as 21,300 feet. This is one of the area's largest and most active volcanoes. (Photo: Jesse Allen and Robert Simmon / NASA)
Volcanic ashes from Shinmoedake peak, located between Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures, is seen in southern Japan, in this NASA satellite image taken and released February 3, 2011. More than 1,000 people in southern Japan have been urged to evacuate as the volcano picked up its activities, spewing ashes and small rocks into the air and disrupting airline operations, a municipal official said on Monday.

This natural-color satellite image provided by NASA and acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite on July 8, 2011 shows the ash plume of the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano in Chile. The volcano's eruption resulted in grounded flights across the lower third of South America for most of the winter tourist season. Lodges and restaurants in Bariloche and Villa La Angostura normally filled with skiers, are empty. With airport runways, Andean slopes and sheep and cattle ranches coated in ash, the local economy has been devastated. (AP Photo/NASA)
Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted explosively on April 14, 2010 and resulting ash fallout disrupted travel across Europe. In this photo taken nearly a month later by the Terra satellite, a massive plume is still visible 530 miles away. (Photo: Jeff Schmaltz / NASA GSFC)
