Eruption of Mount Etna, March 2017, satellite image. Lava (red) is seen flowing from the summit (blue) of Mount Etna (upper left), in Sicily, Italy. This eruption resulted in several people being injured. Mount Etna occupies the eastern part of the Italian island of Sicily. It is the largest and most active volcano in Europe, and rises to 3323 metres above sea level. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. This image was obtained at 10:45 UTC by the Copernicus Sentinel-2A satellite. The surrounding snow has been processed in blue to distinguish it from clouds (white). Sentinel-2A has a wide-swath high-resolution multispectral imager with 13 spectral bands to monitor changes in land cover and vegetation.
