There are many things you’d want to see when you’re in space, one of them isn’t a volcanic eruption that’s for sure! I mean let’s put things into perspective. You’re in space (amazing, well done) you’re floating around in the cosmos having a great time then suddenly you see what appears to be a HUGE streak of smoke. “ARGH, what’s going on down there!?” you ask.
The ash plume from the eruption of the Kliuchevskoi Volcano in the Kamchatka peninsula, as seen from the Space Shuttle Endeavour in Oct 1994 is truly horrific in how much area the smoke covers. You always see these sorts of pictures from the ground but never really see how far the smoke spreads, well now you can understand by these stunning photographs taken below.
