Volcanoes fascinate me! ('transcript' or rather my interpretation of George Clooney's words to Catherine Zeta-Jones in Intolerable Cruelty). :-)

The Middle-East is not an easy place to go, so that explains that hole in my 'geographical education'. "My" Africa is just like for Earth observation systems in general, basically a 'black hole'. I hope to do something about that - I'd really love to learn more about that continent.

What a spectacular and devastating disaster this was. It killed more than 50 persons including volcanologist David A Johnston while he was observing the volcano.

The Icelandic volcano on Eyjafjallajokull simply will not call it at day. New high plumes of ash have been coming our way (Ireland for the most part) again. And there is no sign of this volcano zipping it any time soon.
Looks gorgeous in this color palette taken by EO-1.
