On January 22, 2007, the Sheveluch (or Shiveluch) Volcano released another plume. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the plume blows toward the north, then turns sharply to the left before it curves back in a generally northward direction. The plume casts a blue-gray shadow over the frozen landscape underneath.
