Chile and Argentina - August 15th, 2011

Volcanic ash from the Puyehue Volcano in Chile can be seen spreading over the Andes Mountains and across Argentine Patagonia. The ash partially obscures the Piedra del Águila Reservoir, although the El Chocón Reservoir can be observed at the upper right.

The Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic eruption has be going on since June 4, 2011. Scientists have determined that the eruption is actually from the Cordón Caulle fissure of the volcanic complex, although most media continue to refer to the event as the Puyehue eruption.
