Eruption of Colima volcano, Mexico

Uploader comment: In early January, 2013, Mexico’s Colima volcano abruptly awoke, sending a column of ash 3 kilometers (1.86 mi) into the air. NASA’s Aqua satellite was passing over the region during the eruption, allowing the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying aboard to capture this true-color image at 20:10 UTC (3:10 pm EST/US) on January 6.
