Shiveluch and Klyuchevskaya volcanoes continue their long-running eruptions. In this natural-color satellite image, a thin volcanic plume stretches from Shiveluch’s active lava dome over the Kamchatskiy Zaliv (Gulf of Kamchatka). A wider but more diffuse (and harder to see) plume extends southeast from Klyuchevskaya. The pale dot above Klyuchevskaya is likely an ash or ash-and-steam cloud. Recent photographs of Shiveluch and Klyuchevskaya are published by the Kamchatkan Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT). This image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard Terra.
