A massive volcanic eruption was shown from a satellite. It's been active for over 90 years

The volcano on the Italian island of Stromboli exploded early on Sunday morning, releasing a huge plume of smoke and lava that spilled into the sea.

The eruption caused a partial collapse of the crater terrace, followed by large streams of lava reaching the sea, with huge smoke poles rising several hundred metres above the volcano, and the Italian civil protection authorities increased the level of danger from yellow to orange, as "the situation with the increased imbalance of volcanoes continues".

The European Space Agency showed the image of Sentinel 2, which was processed to show events in true color. Scientists used a short-wave infrared channel to highlight a new stream of lava. The Sentinel-2 mission is based on the constellation of two identical satellites. Each is equipped with an innovative broadband multispectral high-resolution image shaper with 13 spectrum bands. The equipment allows observation of changes in soil and vegetation.

The Stromboli volcano is located on the northernmost island of the Eolia Archipelago and is located near the northern border of Sicily and has been active for the past 90 years.
