GM, you think that's bad?In 1966 I was there CAMPING at the lip of the crater!!! Mind you, they had told us that it was extinct - we were later advised that they meant to tell us it was DORMANT. Thankfully, Etna didn't erupt for another 5 years, although it did rumble and hiss a lot whilst we were there :O
Skiing at the base (or exceptionally close to it) of a very active volcano. Perhaps it's just me, but this doesn't seem like a real smart idea.
Great! Looks like the camera was or adjusted or relocated, the view is much better. Also the location map is right now. Thank you folks for taking care!
Would love to ski down enta, looks amazing
1/10/19: California PST 10:13PM: Nice eruption of black/gray steam. Moving to the left of the screen. Nice, to see some more action!
Finally a good snowfall. Maybe the lift will be opening soon. Last season was pretty thin for snow.
Looks like the camera has been attacked by recent snowfall!
I spoke with a friend today who lives in Aci Castello and apperntly there wasn't much quake damage on the coast. Was planning to go there for new year, wishing I had now.
Very interesting with the snow giving visual definition against the black lava. Will need a lot more snow before the skiers show up, I presume.
The old lava flow you can see on this webcam is from 2002 flank eruption
Lori Hensley what you are looking at IS lava from the last eruption I think that the tour guide said that the last heavy lava flow was in 2008 which is what you see now ,I did post some photos of a house where the lava reached the eves and further down is a school where it stopped at the chain link fence scorching some of the buildings, there are several stratovolcanoes with four main craters at the top, when you look around it you will see several small humps on the flanks
Beautiful blue skies and the summit covered in snow - just so beautiful. Morning everyone and Capture Sam. Have a lovely day
Good Morning, Astrid! Great pictures you posted.. Wow, Etna is really spewing. Grin!
