Sicily. The plume of smoke (1) from the eruption of Etna is pushed by a northwest wind. On the visible image, the shade of the plume covers the volcano. On the infrared image, a black zone, thus a warm one, is visible in the volcano crater area. Lipari islands (2) are also visible in the north of Sicily.
