Cleveland Volcano emitted a plume of volcanic ash at 4:00PM ADT on May
23, 2006 (00:00 UTC, May 24). The Moderate Resolution Imaging
Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard the Terra satellite took this
picture a little more than an hour after the eruption began. The image is
a false color composite of 250m MODIS data. Annotated to label the ash plume and Cleveland Volcano.
