NASA satellites captured images of the ash plume from southern Chile's Puyehue-Cordón Volcano that erupted on June 4, forcing evacuation of about 35,000 residents.

The volcano, which is located in Puyehue National Park in the Andes of Ranco Province of Chile, was dormant for decades.

On eruption, it spewed ash over 6 miles (10 km) into the sky.

The satellites captured a visible image of the eruption that showed the large ash plume blowing northeast, and then to the southeast and over the Atlantic Ocean, NASA said in a statement.

Check out the pictures below showing a very clear picture of the erupting volcano from space:
