Mexico’s Popocatépetl Seen From Space

The Popocatépetl volcano (the word is Aztec for "smoking mountain") has been spewing ash, rocks and other material for nearly two weeks now, so prominently that a NASA satellite caught the ash plume from space. The video below is compiled from a week of observation between April 14 through 22. The famous volcano is 40 miles from Mexico City, the nation's capital, and the region is inhabited by at least two million indigenous people.
