Today’s Image of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at Mount Mayon, which some call the perfect volcano due to its symmetrical cone.

Mount Mayon is located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines and has recently begun erupting again. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, with more than 30 eruptions recorded since 1616.

This image was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite.
