Argentina and Chile - August 13th, 2011

Hanging in the air over Patagonia in mid-August is ash from the 2011 Puyehue volcanic eruption, which began in early June. The ash seems to be blowing in a generally northeasterly direction.

The two most evident ash clouds are visible south of a cluster of lakes in Neuquén (below image center) and west of Bahía Blanca (upper right quadrant).
