NASA photo of the eruption of Klyuchevsky volcano on 30 September, 1994, the volcano's largest explosion in 40 years. The large eruption cloud billowed from the summit, and deposited volcanic ash (pulverized rock) on the snow-covered region to the east. Another small steam plume was rising from Bezymianny, the smaller “C”-shaped volcanic summit south of Klyuchevskaya.
