Caption: Satellite view of an eruption of Sakura-jima volcano, Japan. Sakura-jima is one of the world's most active volcanoes. It has erupted thousands of times since AD 708, mostly in a gentle manner. Violent eruptions in 1476 and 1779 exacted a heavy death toll, but in 1914 the local population was evacuated in time following earthquake activity. The volcano has been in low-level activity almost continuously from 1955, causing only nuisance from ash fall. Sakura-jima has formed as a 10 kilometre wide island in Kagoshima Bay, on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu. This image was taken in October 1984 from a Landsat satellite.
