Atmospheric waves generated by the Hunga, Tonga eruption on the 6.2 micron channel superimposed on the true color composition from GOES-17 geostationary satellite

Just before nightfall reached Tonga, the Hunga eruption (lower left) sent atmospheric waves around the globe. 

The atmospheric waves generated by the Hunga, Tonga eruption from the analysis performed in the paper on the 6.2 micron channel superimposed on the true color composition from GOES-17 geostationary satellite (background image composition generated with satpy).
