So, catching up I must get you this:

iss volcano shotClick on that pic for a link to a NASA page with a HUGE picture you can download!

This is an image taken from the ISS during a very fortuitous flyover of the Sarychev volcano in Russia near Japan at just the right time.  Simply amazing.

If you’ve noticed some beautiful purple and pink sunsets lately, now you know why.
