Plume from Mt. Etna In Sicily
Image credit: Jeff Schmaltz MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA GSFC

Uploader comment: Early in the morning of October 26, 2013 Sicily’s Mount Etna erupted, sending spectacular lava fountains into the air while twin volcanic plumes – one of ash, one of gas – poured out of two different craters. The Northeast Crater – one of several on the volcano’s summit – emitted a column of dark brown ash while the New Southeast Crater vented a paler column of primarily gas.
