Uploader comment: In April, 2012, Popocatépetl, a glacier-clad stratovolcano sitting 70 km (43.5 miles) southeast of Mexico City, once again dramatically lived up to its Aztec name “smoking mountain” by ejecting smoke, gas and ash up to 1.5 kilometers in the air. At times, incandescent blocks were tossed as far as 500- 800 km (300- 497 mi) from the rim, and plumes of ash drifted over villages and towns to the east.
