The crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) acquired this image of the Sarychev Volcano as it erupted on June 12, 2009. The Sarychev Peak is located in the northern part of the Kuril Islands, an archipelago in the northwest Pacific in Russian territory.

A newly released video based on several stunning snapshots taken by astronauts reveals the beauty and power of the erupting volcano. Sarychev peak which rises to a height of 4,908 feet (about 1,500 meters), is the tallest peak on Matua Island in the northern part of the Kuril Islands, a Russian archipelago in the northwest Pacific Ocean.
