The Bogoslof has changed to a red aviation code, following a significant explosive eruption this 24 June at 0h49 UTC / 23 June 16h49 AKDT.
It produced a plume rising to about 36,000 ft, and was accompanied by a strong seismicity, flashes and infra-sons. The eruption lasted 10 minutes.
The satellites located the volcanic cloud at 1:30 UTC, at 36,000 ft, moving northeast.
Update :The event at 00:49 UTC was followed by five additional eruptive bursts at 3:18-3:24 UTC, 4:13-4:21 UTC, 5:04-5:12, 5:52-5:55 and 8:40-8:44 UTC. High clouds have moved into the region since the initial explosion and has obscured observations of ash clouds from these later events. The meteorological cloud deck top is at about 28,000 to 30,000 ft asl, and none of the explosive events has produced a cloud that have risen above it. These explosions were also detected in infrasound data, but no lightning strokes were detected by the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN).
