A plume of ash from the summit of the Klyuchevskaya Volcano on Russias far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula was captured by the Terra satellite on June 3, 3007.
When this image was taken, the explosive activity had subsided, but the volcano was still active.

The Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano on Russias Kamchatka Peninsula spewed a powerful vapour column to a height of up to 1.5 kilometres above the summit on Saturday, 28th April, 2007.
According to the head of the Klyuchevskaya volcanic station Yuri Demyanchuk, the eruption of the volcano that began on February 15 so far is considerably weaker than the 2005 eruption, but the volcano activity is intensifying.

Mount Klyuchevskaya has started emitting lava on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
Klyuchevskaya, one of the world's highest active volcanoes, rising to a height of 4,750 meters, is emitting lava at an altitude of 4,200-4,300 meters.

"The authorities should warn people about a possible danger and take proper security measures" - Alexei Ozerov, a senior seismology researcher.

The lava flow would grow more powerful.
Streams of lava with a temperature of about 1,100 C are encountering ice caps, producing powerful explosions of vapour. Experts are warning of devastating mudflows that can reach 500 meters in width and can descend the volcano's eastern slopes.
