Description: From Smithsonian Institution (1975): "Shishaldin, during the few times it could be observed from Cold Bay, was seen to be continually active in September and into October. At 2215 on 16 September, NOAA's RV Millard Freeman, at 55.55N, 163.82W experienced rainfall that contained ash. This continued for 15 minutes while the ship was headed on course 250 true. The ash eruptions had apparently ceased by the end of October."
