Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at this week’s violent eruption at Mount Sinabung in Indonesia.

The blast occurred on February 19, 2018, as the stratovolcano shot ash and steam at least 16,000 to 23,000 feet into the sky.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra satellite.
