Ahh, I missed stromboli! Still, an interesting fact for Etna, the current eruption needs to deposit another 15 meters of ash and debris to exceed it's maximum height! According to experts, lol.
Stromboli was working this morning....
Not quite Barbara. But it is VERY active now, lol. Apparently, this latest activity began last September from a new cone within the crater that has grown and even outgrown the old cone. There is more info on "goetna". Such a shame the stromboli cam is still down though. Happy viewing
Very active tonight!
Impressive fountains they are the first time I've seen them on here
The lava fountains are beautiful tonight.
Seasons greetings to all. Agnostics, atheists and to all faiths of the world. Here's hoping for a nicer 2021, wiser, mindful and caring to everyone and everything!
Oh never mind, I see them! Nice!
Too bad no one (that is able) took pictures last night. It was flowing strong.
It looks like 4 vents I think it has well and truly blown its top off.
UK 11h21 Etna is hotting up again lots of white steam
Eruption happening now (5.08 local time). Lava flow coming down the side of the crater.
To another Sally, we went to Sicily and stayed in a lovely hotel in Taormiona, I went to the bedroom when we arrived and flung open the shutters to be greeted with this view!. It was quite surprise.
Just watched the time lapse right near the end seeing the "fire" in the volcano chamber amazing. Maybe a little bit personal I went on holiday to New Zealand and took the 4x4 trip up what I thought was an extinct volcano, then over the cusp I slid down into the mouth of the volcano picking up huge pieces of burnt out rock it weighed nothing it was a cinder. I spent a lovely time lying in the sun having a couple of smokes watching the men (boys) having fun they had walked to the top of the volcano and did the scree run sooner or later the run turned into a a mixture of tumbles head over heels down into the base plug. The best laugh all holiday. The climb up and out of the crater was hard work. When I got my certificate I realised it was not an extinct volcano but a dormant one. I am so happy I did it but if I had read the small print I would not have gone.
Coraline: the time lapse looks weird because the camera was completely covered by snow for that day, and a few days before. Looks like the snow has now melted, or been wiped off.
I agree Coraline that is still on lapse what you described those psychedelic bubble a bit like lots of floating camera lenses
