Activity at Shiveluch volcano, 3 October 2009 (NASA MODIS image)

The NASA Earth Observatory have published a new image of Shiveluch volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula, captured on 3 October 2009 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite. The image shows a diffuse plume dispersing to the south-east. To the south-west of Shiveluch lies Kliuchevskoi volcano, which has also been active lately, although at the time this picture was taken it seems to have been going through a quiet interlude.
