Mount Etna, Italy - December 7th, 2010

Mount Etna, capped with snow, can be seen on the eastern end of Sicily, Italy. At the time this image was taken, winds were blowing a small ash plume due east.

The northern and southern coasts of Sicily are flanked by tan and green sediments. Part of the tip of the Calabria region and the Strait of Messina are also visible.
