Scientists believe Bogoslof volcano erupted for the first time this year, following a series of explosions that date back to mid-December. 

Monitors on nearby islands detected seismic activity Monday emanating from the Eastern Aleutian volcano.

But scientists believe the explosion was minor. The period of increased seismicity lasted about 10 minutes.
