Watching Nabro from space.



Last week, one of the weather blogs I read kept talking about this volcanic eruption in Africa. They actually called the eruption a full day before anyone confirmed it.

They accidentally saw the first images of the eruption because they were watching for storms rolling off of Africa. These can turn into hurricanes. The plume showed up in the vapor loops.

The area is so remote, the only way to view right now is NASA. Image above from Earthquake Report.

This is also where I ran across this video of that lake covered in ash from the Chili volcano. A guy is trying to dive into the lake. Which I imagine will die soon. I recommend you watch it, because I guarantee you've never seen anything like it.
