On the Earth Explorer website, a satellite image of Saunders Island from the 20th April 2015 showed what was mostly a cloudy day but the southwest portion of the island was visible. It showed what appeared to be a cloud with some possible ash content immediately to the west-southwest of the summit area of Mount Michael drifting southwest bound.
