  STS039-081-00X Shipunsk Peninsula, Kamchatka, Russia May 1991
The mountainous snow-covered Shipunsk Peninsula can be seen in this southwest-looking view. The Shipunsk Peninsula's (arrowhead-shaped feature) is located on the eastern coast of the rugged and volcanic 750 mile (1208 km) long Kamchatka Peninsula of far eastern Russia. In the upper left part of the image, Avachinsk Bay, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, and home to the large Russian Naval Base at Petropavlovsk, is visible. The Avacha River Valley (not snow-covered) is discernible traversing northwest across the upper portion of the image. Slightly above the center of the image, the snow-covered stratovolcano, Avachinskaya, which last erupted in January 1991, is visible. To the right of Avachinskaya Volcano is the 11339-foot (3456 meters) high snow-covered stratovolcano Karyakskaya. This active volcano last erupted during the winter of 1956-1957. Below and slightly to the right of the two previously mentioned volcanoes, is the snow-covered and partially cloud covered Zhupanovskaya Volcano (near the right center of the image). This volcano last erupted in 1959.
