The Klyuchevskoy volcano is entering its fifth day of effusive-explosive eruption.
Lava spattering and ejecta are expelled at an approximate height 300 meters above the crater.

The plume of gas and ash was sent up to an altitude of 23,000 ft (7,000 m) and spread for 60 km to the east of the volcano.

The lava flow on the southeast flank of the volcano (Apakhonchich chute) currently measures about 2,000 m long but could grow since it is still active.
A satellite image captured on Nov. 8th shows elevated surface temperatures in the area of volcanic edifice.
Measurements by MIROVA Detection System detected a very high thermal anomaly (1059 MW-1373 MW) during the past 3 days.
