Alaska's Bogoslof Volcano has once again erupted.

Back on Sunday it erupted for 16-minutes.

It sent up a cloud of ash almost 11,000 metres into the air above the Aleutian Islands.

Bogoslof Island or Agasagook Island is the summit of a submarine stratovolcano located at the southern edge of the Bering Sea, 35 miles northwest of Unalaska Island of the Aleutian Island chain.

A series of short volcanic eruptions on a nearly daily basis took place starting December 20, 2016, producing towering volcanic ash clouds and volcanic lightning, changing the geography of the island.
