Huge Language volcano eruption is seen from space by the Japanese satellite

Enormous Language volcano eruption is seen from SPACE while satellite captures the moment when the Filipino mountain explodes and lets a plume of ash and sulfur flow into the air

  • The Japanese Himawari-8 satellite recorded the eruption of the Taal volcano
  • The volcano erupted on January 12 and 13 and forced thousands to flee their homes
  • Animation shows the plume that spreads over the course of two days

The Taal volcano in the Philippines woke up last week from a 43-year sleep and a satellite captured the entire event from space.

The eruption was recorded by the Japanese Himawari-8 satellite, which was animated and released by that shows the plume spread over the course of January 12 and 13.

The huge volcano sent ash nine miles into the air, followed by a flowing lava fountain that forced thousands to flee their homes.

Ash clouds blew more than 60 miles north of the volcano, reached Manila and closed the country’s main airport with hundreds of canceled flights.

There were no early reports of victims, but the authorities today tried to evacuate more than 6,000 villagers from the volcanic island in the middle of a lake that is usually a popular tourist spot.

The eruption began with an explosion of overheated steam and rock, but by early Monday “fountains” of lava had been spotted on Taal, the volcano monitoring agency said.

“The plume probably consists mainly of water droplets,” said Simon Carn, a volcanicologist at Michigan Tech.

“There may be some volcanic ash, but in such ‘wet’ plumes, volcanic ash can be difficult to detect because the ash particles are often covered with liquid water.”

The crater of the volcano, located in the middle of a picturesque lake, came to life with towering clouds of ash and rays of hot hot lava on Sunday, forcing people living around the mountain south of Manila to hurry to safety.

Clouds of volcanic ash that blew over Manila, 40 miles to the north, closed the country’s main airport on Sunday and part of Monday until the ash fall.

The warning level since the Sunday eruption started is 4, indicating that a dangerous eruption is possible in hours to days.

Many people left livestock and pets, as well as homes full of possessions, after the authorities issued a warning warning that an “explosive eruption” could occur.

The Red Cross Philippine president, Richard Gordon, said people were being encouraged to carry out evacuation orders because the possibility of an explosive outburst was “high.”

“We urge people living in the danger zone to evacuate and follow evacuation orders from the authorities,” he said.

‘Take your animals and cattle to evacuation centers if you have to. The Philippine Red Cross works around the clock to assess and fulfill the needs of affected communities. “

Taal is one of the most active volcanoes in a country that is periodically hit by eruptions and earthquakes because of its location on the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’ – an area with intense seismic activity.
