Chile and Argentina - October 15th, 2011

Chile’s Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcano acted up again this week releasing a cloud of ash that spread across Chile and over Argentina. In the lower half of this image, a whitish ash cloud can be seen fanning out from the volcano.

In the upper half of the image, some tan-colored ash can be seen hangin over the province of Buenos Aires, between Bahía Blanca and the city of Buenos Aires (upper right corner, appearing as a greyish-tan area on the shores of the brown, sediment-laden Rio de la Plata Estuary).
