Mount Etna, Sicily, Italy - January 19th, 2009

Mount Etna, capped with snow, can be seen on the eastern end of Sicily, Italy. Part of the tip of the Calabria region and the Strait of Messina are also visible.

Upon opening the full image, a river spilling tan sediments into the sea east of Mount Etna can be observed. Some sediments can also be seen off the southern coast of the island.

Some phytoplankton or algae is visible all around the coast of the island, as well as off the southern shore of the mainland.

    Mount Etna is absolutely gorgeous, the views from the top are stupendous, and because of the lack of oxygen at that level, it is a rush. Many people do not realize, it is the most active volcano in Europe.
