A Long View of Mount Etna

Oblique photographs can provide a unique perspective on the planet’s topographic highs, including Europe’s most active volcano.

ISS External High-Definition Camera (EHDC) photograph ISS069-E-127 was acquired on March 30, 2023, with a D4 Electronic Still Camera using a focal length of 500 millimeters. It is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by an externally mounted camera on the ISS during Expedition 69. The image has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by Amber Turner, Jacobs JETS II Contract at NASA-JSC.
