Months after first erupting—and sending ash around the world—activity at Chile’s Puyehue-Cordón Caulle Volcanic Complex may be winding down. The volcanic plume in this satellite image appears noticeably thinner than it did one week before. Chile’s El Servicio Nacional de Geología y Minería (SERNAGEOMIN) has recently reported only weak earthquakes, and no events associated with explosions.

This natural-color image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite on August 21, 2011.
