Photos show satellites show a massive volcanic ash trail from the Raikoke volcano, located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, after an eruption on Saturday, June 22. Kuril Islands in the Sakhalinskaya region of Russia near the Kamchatka Peninsula. Unlike some of its continuously active neighbors on the Kamchatka peninsula, the Rickeke volcano on Kurili is rarely erupting.
The latency period ends around 4 am local time on June 22, when extensive ash and volcanic gases are fired from its crater 700 meters wide.
One of the photos was shot by the expedition astronaut "Expedition 59" at the International Space Station on the morning of the eruption.
A "disappeared" Russian volcano could unleash the destruction of Vesuvius.
Simon Carn, a Michigan volcanologist The technology said, "What a spectacular image." This reminds me of the classics. Sarichev peak astronaut photographer AF of the eruption in the Kurils about ten years ago.

the base of the column may be a sign of entering the ambient air in the column and of the condensation of water vapor.
"Or it may be a rising channel of interaction between magma and seawater, as Raikoke is a small island and the entrances are likely to enter
Another image titled with the moderate moderate modem (MODIS) spectrradiometer of NASA "Terra", shows concentrated ash at the west end of the rail, above Raikoke.
The Tokyo and Anchorage ash volcanoes centers have tracked the track and issued several notes to aviators showing that the ash has reached an altitude of 13 kilometers (8 miles).
In addition to tracking the ash, satellite sensors can also track volcanic gas movements. kilometers so that the altitude of 13 to 17 kilometers indicates that the cloud of eruption is mostly in the stratosphere.
"The persistence of large quantities of SO2 over the last two days also shows a strep-injection injection."
