Last week’s Google Earth image was Vesuvius, most famous for its 79 AD eruption that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum, near modern-day Naples, Italy. Vesuvius has erupted numerous times throughout history, with the most recent eruption being in 1944. The outer rim on the right side of the photo is from a prehistoric catastrophic eruption that destroyed much of the mountain.
This week, once again, I’m featuring a volcano. This one is a mega-volcano, with the world’s largest volcanic lake. Where is it?
Grace and Peace
