Sarychev Peak is located on Matua Island in the Kuril Islands of Russia. When the volcano erupted on June 11, 2009, the expulsion of debris caused significant interruption to air traffic between east Asia and North America. The eruption was also so great that astronauts aboard the International Space Station were able to photograph the plumes of ash and smoke rising from its cone, as the force of its shock waves dispersed all clouds covering the area.
