Mount Shishaldin in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands erupted on Tuesday, October 3, spewing gases and ashes into the sky.

The United States Geological Survey said the eruption had ended but low-level ash emissions from volcanic flow were still possible.

The eruption sent sulfur dioxide, a pollutant, into the atmosphere, the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) said.
