Volcanic Quartet

Four of the volcanoes erupting on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula are visible in this NASA satellite image. From north to south: Shiveluch, Bezymianny, Tolbachik, and Kizimen. The natural-color image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on April 10, 2013.
