Tongues of torching magma slide Sicily’s Mount Etna in the photograph, which was gotten from the International Space Station on Saturday (March 19) by European Space Agency (ESA) space wayfarer Thomas Pesquet.
“The wellspring of liquid magma is right now emanating and the liquid magma is perceptible from space, in the midst of the night! (the red lines on the left),” Pesquet made on Twitter Tuesday (March 21), where he posted the photograph.
ESA’s Sentinel-2A satellite moreover shot the Mount Etna transmission beginning late, getting a change on March 16.
“The singing magma spilling out of Mount Etna can be seen obviously in the photograph from Sentinel-2A,” ESA pros wrote in a photograph portrayal. “The fusing snow has been managed in blue to see from the hazes.”
With a crest around 10,900 feet (3,320 meters) above ocean level, Mount Etna is the tallest component well of magma in Europe. It sits close beyond what many would consider possible between the African and Eurasian fundamental plates. Made records out of Etna’s unremitting releases go the distance back to 425 B.C.
Pesquet is a man from the space station’s accessible Expedition 50 cluster. He got together at the floating lab in November and is needed to return to Earth toward the begin of June, near to NASA space pioneer Peggy Whitson and cosmonaut Oleg Novitskiy. This is Pesquet’s first space mission.
