Hi Tio, i have no idea what the info "kms" indicates, but positively not the distance. I checked Mykonos camera, where the number you talk about shows "45 kms". I've been there in person,even found that camera on one of my pictures. I would "gestimate" from camera to those wind mills could be about 1/2 km. Thus the number XY kms indicates something else.
Boats seem a little bit close tonight.
Tio, The Reggio Calabria camera is 85km from stromboli
PeeJay...Are you sure - The Reggio Calabria has 85Kms but the buildings are really close
Tio, it shows how far away these views are from this camera..
What does it mean...the little sign bottom fight on the thumbnail iKms or 60Kms or whatever ?
Lots of lights moving around upper left, tonight
Interesting thought SkyJester. Sorry the map did not help.
Marketa, unfortunately the map doesn't show the location of the lower vent (or maybe vents). I'm wondering if this proximity between the vents and sea could allow (or maybe already is allowing) water into Stromboli's magma chambers. It seems to be steaming a lot more than erupting recently.
SkyJester, if I could advise you, click on globe symbol with note "locate", just above upper right corner of picture and the map opens to you. This map covers very small area; if you click on small satellite window located on the left lower part of map, you could see boulders in the water, this is how close it is. Thus click few times on "-" located under "+" on right side of map, so map will cover larger and larger areas until you get area of your interest. Then check on very bottom of the map on very right side, there is a bar with indication how many feet it represents at this particular zoom. This way you can measure pretty well any distances. B.t.w. I found satellite map of island and its details in large scale over all screen breathtaking!
18.48 The other camera is working.
I'm guessing 100ft. Is there a prize involved?
One other question from my house, anyone know the distance between that lower vent and waterline?
To 1037: Of course this site has it.But if you just open web site and do nothing, you will not see it.Thus: After the web site opens, click or just move with the mouse on the picture just above thick black line with all info on the bottom of picture.. When you do it, on the bottom of the picture in right corner of the picture appears symbol for camera, then sound symbol with bars and on very right are arrows you are looking for. Click on this and the picture opens. Note, as soon you leave mouse from that area (on original picture), all those symbols disappear. Anytime you click there, they appear again. That's how it works.
Hello everyone. I had hoped that after I became a member. That I would find a zoom feature for the cameras. I was very disappointed to find that the site does not offer that option.
The vent down near sea level is smoking well. Wonder if it could be a safety valve and avoid next eruption. We did have one in July, then August and now we're in September.....
