Stromboli cam should be back, soon! Received an email from Skyline webcams, asking what happened to Stromboli's webcam.
Strombers is back on!!
There went a hearty soul..
I will find those Anton..good 2 C u here! :) I know Etna is very special.. :)
Something definitely worth checking out are shots of Etna erupting as seen from the international space station. Fabulous images. Etna's eruptions are usually clearly visible from space and if you can spare some time to google-image "Etna-eruption-space-station" you'll find a collection of gob-smackingly beautiful photographs o Eastern Sicily's contour with that gigantic column shooting out of it...
Melinda: I believe you! I wish I'd see it erupt! :)
Etna is a very different volcano than Stromboli. it doesn't full on erupt as often as Stromboli but when it does it is something to see(lots of videos on Youtube of it). Etna's shows make Stromboli's look tiny lol. I enjoy watching Stromboli but Etna is special to me for some reason. I hope Stromboli's cam is back up soon though as I do enjoy watching and getting screen shots.
Your right Ruby, I found a few eruption photos of Etna.. :) Yes, Volcano's r us is needed.!! :0
David - I scooted through the photos, there were pictures of eruptions but not to the frequency of Stromboli. I have emailed the host of Stromboli ( the one that comes up on photos) to ask them if they still host or if they know what's happened to the webcam. I will let you now if I get a response. Meanwhile maybe check out volcanos r us!!
I guess the name gave this site 5 million hits I see no pictures of eruptions and I've watched several hours and have seen nothing. :(
But yes Cap. Sam..I read your message again, and your right. That has to be the problem.. Sounds logical to me!
I can't believe the Stromboli cam is down just turned 2 million views and it's down. I guess it could be a computer problem Cap. Sam.. I know every other cam on the Island is up and running.. Very odd.. There was a 'breach' last week as if an eruption happened very near the webcam platform. Maybe there is an issue in that respect.. but who knows. I'm glad we are able to send messages. :)
I really hate to step on this 'live cam's' comments about another cam ,to the host's please pardon me, .. ( " The Day the Video Died " ) if you remember we all could still post into comments. Text ( comments ) in the amount of data used is tiny small tiny compared to the video , so each 'live cam' sends the video feed to a server in France that can handle all the viewers looking and the huge amount of data of the video feed.. With an exception or two all cam locations where active that day just with no video feed. Now notice the comments from the other place does not work. My guess is the computer on that island has an issue. When we see the " OFF LINE " and there is no box to enter and submit a comment it means that the locations computer is not communicating to Skylines computers and the video server. I could be wrong. - Again , Thanks to the host's of this great 'live cam' and pardon me for this 'off subject' comment.
Your right PMM..This is wonderful.. yes the clouds or snow are blowing now! I was so hoping it would stay clear here. :)
