Bogoslof spews lava in fourth eruption (Alaska)

Source: Alaska Public Radio Network

A volcano in the eastern Aleutians is erupting again.

For the fourth time in less than a week, Bogoslof volcano has erupted prompting the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) to issue its highest alert for air travel.

The observatory said the eruption on Dec. 26 threw ash 30,000 feet above the uninhabited island.

Experts cannot predict how long the eruption might last because there is no monitoring equipment on Bogoslof.

1. Really, they named the volcano "theologian"?

Perhaps it was named "theologian"? Had ties to the island?

Perhaps short of bogoslovenie?

The Aleutian Islands' still-rumbling Bogoslof volcano is once again under higher alert levels after the latest of several eruptions there in the past week.

Alaska Volcano Observatory posted a Tuesday afternoon update slightly lowering the alert level to "watch" for Bogoslof, about 60 miles west of Unalaska, and its aviation color code to orange. The volcano had been at "warning" and red," the observatory's highest alert levels, since an eruption Monday afternoon.

Seismic data and satellite images showed an "ash-producing eruption" and cloud at the volcano just after 2 p.m. Monday, following at least three last week that reshaped much of low-lying Bogoslof Island.
