Image of the visible spectrum of the Cumbre Vieja volcano, La Palma, at sunrise, using a Nikon camera. The cloud of smoke and ash prevents us from seeing the lava gushing from the different vents. However, with the range known as shortwave infrared or SWIR, it is possible to see the evolution of the eruption through the smoke. Credit: IACTEC-Space.
