When Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) erupted on the morning of Sept. 13, 2012, NASA’s Terra Earth observation satellite was high above to capture this natural-color image of the eruption as it occurred.
According to Guatemala’s National Coordination for Disaster Reduction or ‪Coordinadora Nacional para la Reducción de Desastres (CONRED), the eruption included ash emissions to the west and a 500-meter (2,000-foot) long lava flow. CONRED also warned of pyroclastic flows that could descend the mountain in any direction.
