Santorini Volcano, Greece

This space shot shows the island of Santorini on the right, the island of Thirasia on the upper left, and the two cones of the Santorini volcano in the middle.

Santorini and Thirasia are remnants of the volcanic caldera, after the catastrophic explosion of 1650 BC.

Of the two volcanic cones, the smaller one is ancient, while the larger one was formed by volcanic activity in 1956.
