Sakurajima volcano (Japan): vulcanian explosion after 3 weeks of calm, ash to 20,000 ft altitude

This evening's explosion at Sakurajima volcano
This evening's explosion at Sakurajima volcano
After more than 3 weeks with no recorded eruption, a strong vulcanian-type explosion occurred this evening at 00:02 past midnight (15:02 UTC).
The initial estimate of the ash plume was corrected from 10,000 to 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude, making the event one of the larger ones among Sakurajima's long list of vulcanian explosions throughout the past years. Whether or not the volcano will return to a more regular style of explosive activity remains to be seen.
