NASA used their Earth Observatory to release satellite images of an undersea volcano erupting. The image was captured on May 14 by the Operational Land Imager 2 on the Landsat 9 satellite. This satellite is specifically designed to take high-resolution images of our planet.
The image shows a plume of discoloured water being generated by a submarine volcano. The Kavachi volcano is located in the Solomon Islands and is one of the most active volcanoes in the Pacific, according to NASA. Its location is also about 24 kilometres south of an island called Vangunu.
The crater was an unlikely home to two species of shark, suggesting that large marine animals can exist in extreme environments like hot and acidic water. For that reason, Kavachi was dubbed “Sharkano” in 2015. Researchers found scalloped hammerhead and the silky shark among multiple other fish species living in the active volcano.
