A thermal anomaly inside the summit crater of Mount Michael on Saunders Island was discovered in a satellite image by Landsat 8 taken on January 31, 2018. Now in new images from February 10, 2018, the thermal anomaly is still present inside the summit crater of Mount Michael in the Southern Atlantic Ocean. This is clearly indicating that some elevated activity is taking place inside the crater of the volcano. It could either be low level strombolian activity, or lava flows covering a small part of the crater interior, or a new lava lake.
The volcanic activity was first discovered in satellite images on January 31, 2018:
Then, about ten days after, on February 10, 2018, the bright, red thermal anomaly was still visible, had grown larger, and was accompanied by a degassing plume floating around the volcano crater:

Sometimes, the islands are producing weird cloud patterns:
Another example that eruptions occur all over the world, even in remote and inhabited islands, lost between the southern pit of South Amarica and Antarctica in the unknown southern Atlantic Ocean. Meanwhile a seismic swarm is currently hitting under the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the Canary Islands.
