The Sicilian volcano Etna erupts again and NASA records the episode
February 24, 2013
NASA captured the Sicilian volcano Etna eruption, which came back into activity after ten months in the state that experts call “heat”.
The images show the column of lava and ash from space, for some of the three massive explosions that occurred within 36 hours.
The activity began on February 19, according to the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy.
The colors of the photographs, according to what the space agency, “were adjusted in order to see more clearly the difference between lava, snow, forests and mist.”
Regarding the scope of the demonstrations and the potential risks to the population, volcanologists issued no warnings.
