Of the volcano, and the death toll is at about the temperature of molten lava, here is a look at some of the interesting statistics about volcanoes.

The powerful eruption of Raikoke volcano was captured by the astronauts on the International space station on Saturday.

The gorgeous picture shows a massive plume of smoke rises up and is surrounded by white clouds, was published by the NASA Earth Observatory.

The various spacecraft, along with astronauts on board the ISS, and saw the thick plume rise, and, ultimately, stream the east, and was pulled into a storm’s circulation.

The volcano is situated on an island in the kuril islands chain in the north-west of the Pacific Ocean.

The ring of clouds at the base of the plume appears to be water vapor, according to the space agency.

Scientists said the ash could have reached a height of 8 to 10 miles.

“What a spectacular view. It reminds me of the classic Sarychev Peak is an astronaut photo of the eruption in the Kuriles, from about ten years ago,” Simon Carn, a volcanologist at Michigan Tech, said in a statement.

“The ring is made of white, puffy clouds on the base of the column, it may be a sign of air being drawn into the column, and the condensation of the water vapor. Or, it may be in a rising plume, the interaction between molten rock and seawater as Raikoke is a small island and the streams will probably be in the water,” Carn added.

It’s a small island and has recently exploded in 1924, and in the year 1778.
