Dukono Volcano has been blasting ash above Helmahara Island and the surrounding waters since 2003. On April 28, 2014 the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite captured this natural-color view of the erupting volcano. Dukono is 1 of 78 of historically active volcanoes in the Indonesian archipelago.

Dukono is 1 of 78 of Indonesia’s historically active volcanoes.
Dukono, a volcano on the Indonesian island of Halmahera, released a plume of ash and steam in early May 2009. This pattern of intermittent activity continued through April 2014.
After four decades of quiet, the volcano in southern Chile erupted explosively on April 22, 2015.
