In the joint photo, you can see a cloud of ash, and in the background, a small red dot is visible from space.
The red point is Thermal anomalies at the bottom of Nevado Crater and evidence of heat flow within the volcano.
On May 2, the SGC reported that there was an increase in seismic activity at the volcano and that around 7:47 am an ash emission was recorded, reaching a dispersion of 3,000 metres.
Since March 30, the authorities have detected anomalies in the earthquakes recorded by the volcano and Alarms have been triggered in 22 municipalities of the departments of Caldas, Risaralda, Cundinamarca and Tolima.
The geological service added that there is also a process inside the crater to expel sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere and release water vapor from the volcano.
