Throat of Fire erupts in EcuadorThis incredible capture by photographer Patrick Taschler was featured on NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day on April 2, 2012. In it we see the Volcano Tungurahua in Ecuador erupting in spectacular fashion. Molten rock pours down the sides of the 5,000-meter high Tungurahua, while a cloud of dark ash is seen being ejected toward the left. Wispy white clouds flow around the lava-lit peak, while a star-lit sky shines in the distance. The above image was captured in 2006 as ash fell around the adventurous photographer. Located in Ecuador, Tungurahua has become active roughly every 90 years for the last 1,300 years.
