Manam volcano, Papua New Guinea, taken on June 16, 2010 by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA's Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite. Opaque white clouds partially obscure the satellite's view of Manam. The volcanic plume appears as a thin, blue-gray veil extending toward the northwest over the Bismarck Sea. Manam forms an island 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide and is located 13 kilometers (8 miles) off the coast of mainland Papua New Guinea. It is classified as a stratovolcano.
