Here are shots of Redoubt Volcano on March 15, 2009 (before current eruption cycle), and after 8 eruptions, the most recent about 4 hours before this picture was taken. (Images are from the Alaska Volcano Observatory and are from a distance of about 7.5 miles from the summit).

Updated April 4, 2009--Just erupted again this morning. Darker ash this time it appears.
