Mt. Redoubt eruptions.
The other day Mt. Redoubt decided to quit shaking and do something exiting. It blew up and sent an ash cloud to 65,000 feet in one of the several eruptions. Today it did another one and sent a cloud to about 32,000 feet. I was looking at the Alaska Volcano Observatory web site and found this image. It's from a geostationary weather satellite which is parked in an orbit 23,000 miles above the equator over Asia.
