Volcano that shoots up cold liquid


A cryovolcano shoots up cold liquid instead of lava. This cold liquid known as cryomagma is a mixture of water and methane or ammonia. The cryomagma becomes solid as soon as it hits the surface. Cryovolcanoes are found on icy moons. The Sotra Facula volcano on Titan, the moon of Saturn, is a dormant cryovolcano.
