Uploader comment: Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano became increasingly restless in May, 2012, expelling large plumes of gas and ash, as well as ejecting incandescent fragments from the crater. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image on May 6 as an ash plume rose high above the 5,450 meter (17,900 foot) volcano.
