volcanoes from space
This ASTER image of Santorini was acquired on November 21, 2000 and covers an area of 18 by 18 km.
This detailed image of the young volcano was taken by the Ikonos satellite on June 11, 2005. The volcano’s circular crater sits southwest of the center of the island and is surrounded by fresh lava flows and ash. The black shores of the island are scalloped where the flows have solidified in the ocean.
This oblique image (looking at an angle) from the International Space Station (ISS) captures an ash cloud first observed on satellite imagery at 11:00 GMT on August 14, 2006. An ISS astronaut took this picture one hour and 45 minutes later.
