Looks like volcano eruption from space

17 February 2017

Volcanoes and geological formations on the surface of the Earth (or other planet) where molten magma comes to the surface, forming lava, volcanic gases and pyroclastic flows.

The word "volcano" comes from the name of the Roman God of fire Volcano. There are about 1 500 active volcanoes, most of which are located along the Pacific ring of fire, and about 50 of them erupt every year. Almost 500 million people live near active volcanoes.
