Walt Bilofsky flew over the crater on 13 February 2008 and took the photograph below (left). He reported that on his return journey, two days later, there was very little ash coming out. Meave Leakey took the photograph below (right) on 16 January 2009; notice how the whole summit area and much of the slopes are white, compared to what they were the year before.
