NASA Satellite Gallery Shows Chilean Volcano Plume Moving Around the World

Here's a cool story I wrote yesterday using satellite imagery to track the volcanic ash plume from the Chilean Volcano around the world. 

FEATURE/IMAGE GALLERY: NASA Satellite Gallery Shows Chilean Volcano Plume Moving Around the World
Since its eruption in early June, several NASA satellites have captured images of the ash plume from the eruption of the Chilean Volcano called Puyehue-Cordón Caulle and have tracked it around the world. NASA has collected them in the NASA Goddard FLICKR image gallery that shows the progression of the plume around the southern hemisphere.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
