Activity at Klyuchevskoy Volcano

This photograph highlights one of the most active volcanic regions on Earth: the Kamchatka Peninsula in far eastern Russia.  The three largest volcanoes visible at the center include Kliuchevskoy, Bezymianny, and Ushkovsky.  A thin ash and steam plume extends to the east-southeast from the summit of Kliuchevskoy, typical of activity reported at the volcano from early May of this year, when this image was taken from the International Space Station.  For more on this image and location, see http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Collections/EarthObservatory/articles/KlyuchevskoyVolcano.htm.
