Argentina - August 6th, 2011

Ash from the 2011 Puyehue volcanic eruption, which began in early June, still hangs in the air off the coast of Argentina in early August. Ash has been spreading from the volcano, located in southern Chile, across Patagonia and northeast to Buenos Aires.

Here, the ash cloud is situated over the Atlantic Ocean, southeast of the Rio de la Plata Estuary between Argentina and Uruguay (above), east of Bahia Blanca, and northeast of the Valdes Peninsula (lower left corner).
