English: False-color image showing the effects of the eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha?apai volcano in Tonga, March 26, 2009. The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA's Terra satellite captured the image on March 25, 2009. The submerged vent has broken the surface of the Pacific Ocean and the new land is the dark mass south of Hunga Ha?apai. Clouds cover the space between the new land and Hunga Ha?apai. The vent itself is the nearly perfect circular hole near the southern edge of the new land. The ocean around the erupting volcano is bright blue, indicating ash, rock, and other volcanic debris. Plant-covered land is red. Note that Hunga Ha?apai is now colored black, indicating that plants on the island are now buried in ash or dead.
