Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite image (Path 79, Row 23) of the March 11, 2001 Eruption of Mt. Cleveland in the Central Aleutian Islands of Alaska. This is a thermal band image where the lighter shades indicate higher thermal energy being received by the satellite. The brighter linear feature on the western side of Mt. Cleveland is the main 2001 lava flow from the eruption. The eruption plume extends to the northeast, and is actually colder than the surrounding area making the plume appear really dark.
