Image Caption:
STS045-78-052: Pinatubo, Luzon, Philippines This is a near vert-
ical view on Pinatubo, and clearly shows the summit area, and the
immediate extent of the volcanic eruption on the volcano's
flanks, especially to the west. The western mountains are almost
completely deforested, and all of the river beds draining Pinatu-
bo have been widened several-fold from the large ash and debris
loads. This is the first close range Shuttle image of Pinatubo
since the June 1991 eruption.
