Sicily. We can see the plume of smoke (1) from the eruption of the Etna pushed by a northwest wind. On the visible image, the shade of the plume covers the volcano. On the infrared image, a black zone, thus a hot one, is visible in the volcanic crater area. Lipari Islands (2) are also visible to the north of Sicily.
