Caption: Virunga Mountains. Radar composite satellite image of the Virunga Mountains in East Africa, with part of Lake Kivu visible (black, lower left). This chain of volcanos lies on the Albertine Rift and stretches across Rwanda's northern border with Uganda, and east into the Democratic Republic of the Congo. While most are dormant, two of the eight volcanoes are active, with the most recent eruptions in 2006 and 2010. Imaged by the Sentinel-1 satellite, in November 2016.
