In early June of this year, the Puryehue volcano in the Andes mountains of southern Chile erupted. It had not been active since 1960 when it was awakened after an earthquake. This time when it erupted it sent a huge plume of ash 6 miles high across Argentina towards the Atlantic Ocean. It's effects are still being felt for as early as July 1st, flights at the Buenos Aires airport in Argentina were still being disrupted due to low visibility caused by the volcano's ash in the atmosphere. Below are some more amazing photos of the signature of the Puryehue volcano on the landscape of Argentina.
