This once-in-a-lifetime spectacular image was shot from the International Space Station on June 12, 2009 and shows an early stage of one of the larger eruptions at Sarychev Volcano.
The eruption plume is composed of  brown ash and white steam.

The smooth white cloud on top may be water condensation that resulted from rapid rising and cooling of the air mass above the ash column.
