Volcanoes Seen From Space

Have you ever wondered what a volcano looks like from space? Today, we’re counting down our picks of the most impressive volcanoes around the world – captured by satellites.

Our countdown includes Mount Fuji, Mount Mayon and Mount Vesuvius.

Satellites orbiting 800 km above us can monitor volcanoes. They can provide real-time data on volcanic activity and can even help disaster response efforts post-eruption.
