Worldview-2 visible wavelength satellite image of the summit of Cleveland Volcano collected on October 1, 2011. The summit is covered in snow and observed through a break in the clouds. The growing lava dome is observed as the dark feature in the center of the image with a small steam plume coming from the middle of the dome. North is to the top in this image and snow-free ground south of the dome is due to elevated surface temperatures.
