Etna satellite images. Mount Etna, located on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world which allows its dynamics to be frequently observed on satellite images. With a current height of approximately 3,329 meters (10,922 feet), Mount Etna is the tallest volcano in Europe and one of the most prominent in the world. The site includes not only the volcano itself but also the surrounding cultural landscape shaped by its eruptions. Etna experiences frequent eruptions, with both effusive (lava flows) and explosive (ash and volcanic rock) activity. Despite its regular activity, the volcano’s eruptions are often closely monitored for potential impacts on nearby communities. The truly amazing thing is that you can get so much information from one satellite observation.
