Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Bazman Volcano in southern Iran.

The Bazman Volcano is located in a remote desert area 420 kilometers from the Arabian Sea and 120 kilometers northwest of Bampur. It is classified as a stratovolcano that is dormant, but not extinct. The volcano’s summit sits 3,490 meters above sea level and features an explosion crater.

Bazman is also known as Kuh-i-Zindeh, which means “Mountain of the Living One.”

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
