A column of ash, steam, and other volcanic gases rises from Paluweh Volcano (also known as Rokatenda) in this natural-color satellite image. Located on a small island just off the northern coast of Flores Island, Indonesia, Paluweh has been erupting since October 2012. This image was collected March 31, 2013, by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on Earth Observing-1 (EO-1).
