  STS060-092-014 Mount Melimoyu, Chile February, 1994
The Glacier-capped peak of Mount Melimoyu is visible in this near-nadir looking view. A stratovolcano that last erupted 8000 to 11000 years ago, the mountain stands 7872 feet (2391 meters) high. Mount Melimoyu is surrounded by forested hills. The Muraleda Channel is visible to the west of the volcano covering the top portion of the image. The silt-laden meandering Palena River is discernible to the north of the volcano (right portion of the image). The Jacaf Strait is barely discernible to the south of the volcano at the left center of the image. The area around the volcano is sparsely populated.
