New emission detected

Satellite image from the 26th May 2015 shows what is likely to be an emission originating from the crater of Mount Michael on Saunders Island. It would not surprise me if that was an eruption because the plume stands out against the clouds in the area and it looks like there may be some ash content there. At first the plume drifts towards the southeast before being blown east-southeast. There is also some faint colour difference in the plume compared to the clouds around.
