Description: From McGimsey and Neal (1996): "On 12:46 pm AST on Monday, January 30, 1995, USCG C-130 pilots reported a small steam and ash cloud from Makushin Volcano. The cloud rose to about 2400 m (8000 ft) and was carried northeast from the volcano, prompting NWS to issue a SIGMET that ran until 5 pm AST. Over the next hour, several pilots reported seeing a dispersing light brown ash plume at Makushin. All activity subsided shortly thereafter as confirmed by a satellite image recorded at 1:45 pm AST, which showed no sign of the eruption."
