Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at ash streaming out of the Klyuchevskoy volcano.

The Klyuchevskoy volcano is located on the Kamchatka Peninsula along the Pacific Ring of Fire. The peninsula is home to over 100 active volcanoes, making it one of the most volcanically active places on Earth.

Klyuchevskoy is a stratovolcano that is arguably the most active, having formed roughly 6,000 years ago.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
