Is the white ash and the white border the lava?

Angie, I can't help on that one. I'm not much good at interpreting these Earth photos. The satellite images come with an explanation, but when the astronauts take pictures from the space station, we don't get that.

It's a true-color image taken over Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Sharm is at lower left, with the town of Nabq farther up the coast. Tiran and Sanafir Islands are centre and right. The Gulf of Aqaba at the top centre feeds into the Red Sea – home to some of the warmest and saltiest seawater in the world.

This Copernicus EU #Sentinel-2 image shows Aorounga crater in Northern Chad (via VisioTerra) lying only 100 km away from the Emi Koussi volcano. Measuring about 12 km across, the crater was created by a meteorite impact about 340 million years ago.

From an altitude of 255 miles, an Expedition 59 crew member on the International Space Station photographed the Richat Structure, also known as the "Eye of the Sahara" in northwestern Mauritania.

The circular geologic feature is thought to be caused by an uplifted dome that has been eroded to expose the originally flat rock layers.

Captured on 14 April 2018 by the Copernicus EU #Sentinel-2A satellite, this image shows western Pakistan and an important wetland area. It shows a fragmented coast, part of the Indus River Delta. The Indus River, visible on the right, veers through the Sindh Province and is one of the longest rivers in the world, rising in Tibet and flowing around 3000 km before emptying into the Arabian Sea. The delta consists of creeks, swamps, marshes and the seventh largest mangrove forest in the world.
