Amongst Russia’s Kuril Islands is the uninhabitable island of Raikoke. It’s uninhabitable because it’s essentially just a giant volcano. The last eruption at Raikoke was in 1924 and it’s been dormant ever since. But a few days ago it erupted in grand fashion.
Somewhat unexpected, it didn’t escape the notice of NASA, who photographed the giant eruption from the International Space Station using a Nikon D5, shipped to the ISS in 2017.
