Mount Michael volcano erupts in the remote South Sandwich Islands


Satellites aren’t always sent in space to spy on us or to send focused beams of intense microwave radiation over entire Earth! These satellite images from January 1, 2019, show what appears to be slight ash deposits on the east-southeast flank of Mount Michael, a volcano situated in the remote South Sandwich Islands.

And in a false colour image from the same date a thermal anomaly is present inside the main summit crater.

This is a clear indicator that an eruption recently occurred at the volcano but it is hard to work ‘when’ as the previous recent satellite images show cloud cover.

But it is sure… there is currently some sort of volcanic activity going on in this ‘lost’ part of the world.
