Europe's Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission flew above the volcano following the eruption.
The true-color photograph shows lava spilling into the sea and smoke and ash erupting from the volcano.
Stromboli volcano and island are located near Sicily's northern coast in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
One of the most active volcanoes in the world, the volcano has been erupting often during the past 90 years.
Sentinel-2 also discovered "hot spots" on Sicily's Mount Etna, some 60 kilometers from Stromboli.
Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B Earth monitoring satellites are part of the EU/ESA Copernicus Program.
The recent Nord Stream gas pipeline leak's size was estimated with the help of the Sentinel-5P satellite.
Scientists think the two volcanoes are independent, unrelated systems, each with its own eruption pattern.
