Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Torfajökull volcano in Iceland.

Torfajökull is famous for its large caldera, which contains hot springs, mud pools, and gas vents. The volcano hasn’t had a proper eruption since 1477.

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