In the South Pacific Ocean, the Ambyrm Volcano, originally captured in an image taken on April 27, continued to erupt in mid-May 2004. This image was acquired by the Aqua MODIS instrument on May 15. Vanuatu Island is pictured at the top left of the image, and a plume of volcanic ash is drifting southeastward from Ambrym, which is near the Islandís center. MODIS detected a thermal signature (marked in yellow) in addition to the ash plume.
