Anatahan’s erupting again

I mentioned this last month, and have been too busy to keep up until now. Anatahan Island’s volcanic activity is spiking again, nearly a year after its first eruption in recorded history. The ash and debris have forced the FAA to reroute airliners to avoid fouling their engines with volcanic crud.
Kinda cool to think I floated by the place once, less than a mile from ground zero. I’ll have to go look through my old snapshots, since I don’t recall whether I took any that day (there wasn’t much to see).
