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.

The size of Klyuchevskoy volcano is difficult to grasp: a perfect cone rises almost from sea level to close to 5000 m - the highest active stratovolcano by prominence. And even more unbelievable is that it might be less than 10,000 years old and accounts for almost half of Kamchatka's volcanic activity in recent geologic times. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
