Worldview satellite image of Bogoslof volcano collected at 23:13 UTC on June 12, 2017. The circular embayments were formed by a series of more than 40 explosions that began in mid-December, 2016. These explosions have greatly reshaped the island as material is removed and redeposited as air fall. Vigorous steaming is observed from a region to the south of the most active vent areas in the lagoon. Lava extrusion produced a circular dome that first rose above the water on June 5 and grew to a diameter of ~160 m (525 ft) before being destroyed by an explosion early in the day on June 10. Large blocks of the destroyed dome can be seen littering the surface of the island near the lagoon.
