The cloud-covered area left of center is the Ambre volcanic massif. The broad Ambre-Bobaomby volcanic field extends from near the eastern coast (bottom) to include the Orontany Peninsula at the upper right. The north-pointing, arrow-shaped Cape Ambre peninsula forming the extreme northern tip of Madagascar lies at the lower right in this Space Shuttle view. The Ambre-Bobaomby volcanic field consists of Miocene volcanics capped by very recent cones and crater lakes.
