Caption: Plosky Tolbachik volcano erupting, satellite image. North is at top. This volcano (3682 metres) is located in Russia's far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula. It erupted for the first time in 35 years on 27 November 2012, sending clouds of ash to a height of more than 3000 metres. Active lava flows (red, infrared channels) are visible on the volcano's slopes, as well as ice and snow (white). At right are the snow-capped peaks of the Zimin volcano (top right, 3080 metres) and the Udina volcano (2920 metres, centre right). The area shown is 27 kilometres across. Image data acquired on 14 February 2013, by the ASTER instrument on NASA's Terra satellite.
