Kasatochi Eruption and Sunsets

Kasatochi Island, a volcano located in the Aleutian Islands, erupted during the beginning of August and threw a large plume ash into the atmosphere. The result of this plume of ash have been brilliant and vivid sunsets in the Northern Hemisphere.

Some of these sunsets from around the world are featured below.

This week’s update from the Alaskan Volcano Observatory has downgraded the eruption threat from the volcano.

Seismicity at Kasatochi volcano remained low this week. For most of the week, no activity was observed in mostly cloudy satellite views. Today, a weak thermal anomaly was observed at the volcano. On September 3 and 4, passing mariners observed vigorous steam and gas plumes rising above the crater and extending up to twenty miles downwind.

Special thanks to the above photographers for their kind permission to use their photos in this post.
