Landsat 8 image of the aftermath of the Cleveland explosion on January 9, 2019. The satellite image was acquired at 22:11 UTC, just three hours after the explosion at 19:15 UTC. A small steam plume and tephra deposit are apparent in visible imagery (left), and the crater is hot in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) bands (right, pan-sharpened false color). The small deposit is consistent with the geophysical evidence for the small size of the explosion.
