A volcano erupted on the island of Paluweh last month, and NASA has hung around to witness it.
Paluweh’s volcano became active in October. NASA’s Landsat Data Continuity Mission satellite was able to capture the volcanic action from 438 miles above Indonesia’s Flores Sea. Images of the activity were recorded by two of the satellite’s instruments: the Operational Land Imager (OLI) and the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS).
