Mystery Volcano Photo #9

Busy Monday with Dr. Steven Squyres, the Principle Investigator of the Mars Exploration Rover Mission (MER; otherwise known as the plucky Spirit and Opportunity) is at Denison to give a talk and meet with students.

On that note, here is Mystery Volcano Photo #9.
And if you have any more questions for me to consider to ask Dr. Jonathan Castro, email them to me soon at


Good luck!

    Thought I’d finally gotten one, but Gerhardus has probably beaten me to it. I’m not in Africa, but came across Nyiragongo while looking online for information recently on lava lakes. This surely does look like it.

    Should be San Miguel (aka Chaparrastique) in El Salvador … I remember as a child I had a book with a black-and-white photograph showing approximately the same view.

    Looks like someone else already got this one. M guess would have been Semeru as well.

    The answer here was San Miguel in El Salvador … Boris gets the point for this round. I’ll have more on San Miguel and the updated standings later today.
