Image Caption: Barren Island, a small volcanic island which is part of the Andaman
Island group in the Andaman Sea west of Malayasia, began a new
eruptive phase late in 1994. Barren Island last erupted in 1991. The
current eruption was surveyed by a team of Indian scientists in
January, 1995; at that time they thought the eruption was in an
initial stage and gaining momentum. The STS-67 crew noticed the
volcanic plume early in their flight, and had several opportunities to
document the on-going eruption. This view, taken March 14, shows a
healthy volcanic plume rising several thousand feet into the
atmosphere. The main plume drifts westward over Andaman Island,
although a smaller plume close to the ground is being dispersed to the
south.
