Several volcanoes have erupted in the past few months - two in Chile (Chaiten and Llaima) and one in Alaska (Okmok). At any given time, approximately 20 to 50 volcanoes are active worldwide (depending on the definition of "active"). Collected here are photos of volcanic events from the the past several years, seen from many angles, including low Earth Orbit.

New Zealand's volcanoes aren't doing much exciting at the moment, but you can always have a look at the volcano cams at GeoNet
See if you can find Dino!
