Puyehue volcano in Chile erupted on Saturday 4th June 2011 after 51 years of inactivity. More than 600 people were evacuated from the area.
The explosive eruption began on Saturday 4th June producing a 10 km high ash column. Here, the ash can be seen blowing first northeastward towards Neuquén, and then bending at an almost ninety-degree angle and blowing southeastward and offshore between Bahia Blanca and the Valdes Peninsula. In the full image, the ash can be seen extending far out over the Atlantic Ocean.
