🔥 World’s Largest Active Volcano Mauna Loa

Mauna Loa, which means “long mountain” in Hawaiian, is the largest active volcano in the world. It covers 2,035 sq miles (5,271 sq km), and is one of a chain of five volcanoes which form Hawaii’s Big Island.

In the satellite imagery captured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s GOES-West satellite, you can clearly see the volcanic eruption, a monstrous plume of gas and ash suddenly covering a large portion of the Big Island.

❖ የኅዳር ጽዮን ማርያም / Annual feast of St. Mary of Zion

This is a feast colorfully celebrated every year on Hidar 21 (November 30) at every church dedicated to St. Mary. The day is observed with special fervor particularly in Axum Tsion where the Ark of the Covenant is housed safely. The occasion is attended by massive Christian pilgrimages from all over Ethiopia and also foreign visitors making it one of the most joyous annual pilgrimages in Axum, the sacred city of Ethiopians.

The Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion claims to contain The original Ark of the Covenant.The Feast of the Ark of the Covenant (locally known as Tabote Tsion) is held in commemoration of different historical events including the coming of The Ark of the Covenant to Ethiopia and the construction of the first church dedicated to St. Mary in Axum.

The day also marks the destruction of Dagon by the power of The Ark of God, as recorded in the Bible, and the return of The Ark to Israel after seven months of exile at the Dagon’s house in Philistine. (1 Samuel 4; 6)
