This pyramid effect the sun creates in Etna's shadow each evening still gives me chill - like a goose walking over my grave. It's beautiful, and this picture does it no justice believe me - but the the 'pyramid' is just a breathtaking phenomena!

Etna's still putting out a little steam and smoke, but pretty calm all the way around. I hope the vulcanologists were wrong this time! (About expecting another eruption)...

That picture makes her look almost ethereal. What a dichotomous splendor she can be, no? Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture and here's to hoping tbat she stays a bit docile for a little while...

Yeah that pyramid shadow she does so often really has me intrigued. I mean, it's not like I'm the only one who's ever seen it - there must be some history, some stories linked to the phenomina.

The symbolism alone is incredible!

Off to do some searches now.

Thank you!

This happens above the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco. I have seen it many times with my own eyes. Awesome!

Possible Paranoid (Pet Prophetic Post) - Enter with Patience Please!

The volcanologists over the last two weeks have made - on more than one occasion - reference to ‘expecting’ another eruption from Etna using phrases like ‘she’s full to the brim and ready to explode’ - etc.

We’ve all (?) heard stories of animals that ‘know’ before eruptions.

Now combine the two while I add I’ve a young dog who’ll be 5 months on the 6th of August and she is FREAKING OUT tonight.

Nothing in her routine, food, etc is out of the ordinary - but she is displaying behavior that is extremely out of the ordinary.

She’s circling the yard endlessly, throwing her head up every once in a while, whining and circling more.
In the last 30 minutes (yes this behavior has been going on that long) she’s peed at least 15 times.
She does not try to leave the yard (if a strange animal had passed through I would think she would try to ‘follow’ it’s tracks/smell farther), but no, she just paces endlessly the boundaries of the land, whines, pees, and will just not rest.

I’ve been outside all day all evening. I saw no signs of any strange animals. My other pets/livestock are restless, but not like my Luci. With the rooster I have and the male turkey? ANYTHING unusual and they let me know too, but, they’re just having a little trouble settling in tonight - I blame that on Luci being so restless and her endless pacing, peeing, pacing, circling. It’s unreal.

I tried to bring her inside (where she always sleeps with me) and she will have NONE of it - she wants OUT! And that is a FIRST for her. She follows my habits always. When I eat, she eats, when I sleep she sleeps etc.

So, she’s still out there circling, making her water, and circling some more.

Why I’m adding this post should be obvious.

If nothing happens - I don’t know what I’ll write up her behavior as. I just don’t.

If something does happen this tonight/early morning? Then we’ll have one more report - this time before hand - that animals can detect earthquakes/eruptions.

So, we’ll see.

Please, don’t get worried people. I’ll report back as soon as I can. But in the mean time Luci is still just displaying behavior that’s agitated to the max for no apparent reason.

Until next time.


Added note: I left the door open while I was writing this out. She came inside and had diarrhea on the floor. She’s NEVER done this before. Agitated is NOT the word for her at this point she is in a panic! I am at my wits end figuring her behavior out!!!

That pyramid effect is mighty weird-is it some kind of light refraction or something else?

Be ready to get the heck outta there Silo.
If Lucie is acting weird,get ready to retreat to a safer distance for the night-go camping or something.
Good to try that once in a while just to practice I think.
Especially where you live.
Be safe.

Wow Gracie....please be safe! When you can be sure to update us to let us know you're ok....

I can't get over last night. I really expected some fntastic event to take place.
Luci was just freaking and her behavior didn't stop until almost 0230.

Etna? Putting out a little ash, little steam, etc, but nothing.

All in all I guess it's best to report extreme animal behavior before hand if nothing else to prove or disprove the 'animals can detect EQ's and Eruptions speculations'.

As for me I still have no idea what her behavior was all about.

Awesome picture. Are there any myths lined up with that event? If so I really think you should start a thread about it and I'll join in with my pics of Etna. We can't go too far in this thread without risking going off topic. Me? I'm still looking for information on Etna and her 'Great Pyramid' act but have found nothing yet. Please let me know if you start a thread.

Thank you

Just had a little wobble on the traces from Etna and a flare on the thermals.

Ok Folks, let not be toooo hasty on judging my pup.

Since I posted my last here - what 45 mins an hour ago maybe - Etna has started to really make a lot of noise - again. I can't see anything on the webcam - but - She is BOOMING again.

Interesting stuff!

There ya go Tzavros!!!! THANK YOU!

Tremore vulcanico trace has started to rise. Clever doggy
Have to go out today so take care. Try to record the booms. Not much on the webcams yet.

Yeah not to much on the cams but she is getting LOUD and the ground is starting to shake. And yes, this time? After Luci freaking out so bad last night? Yeah, I'm a bit worried. And she is getting louder and louder as I type. Etna, not the dog. LOL. Sorry, lame attempt at humor but I am a little queasy in the stomach this time.
I guess it doesn't help that I read Her gasses can kill people living on her flanks - even without a lot of ash output. Eeek...

WOW! She is REALLY heating up! I can't see anything for the clouds but I can feel and hear her big time.

Check out this 'anomaly' on a photo from the Radio7 WebCam

Interesting stuff that...

Traces are still wobbly. On the cam there are a lot of people watching Her. On the Tremore vulcanico She went up a little this morning then down but not to full level. I will add an image in a minute. It it looks like there is nothing coming out of Her apart from a haze! Then the occational dark smoke and some ash by the looks of it. I think watch for the rest of the day.

She's only just quieted down. I was catching some fine ash that really burns the skin and the eyes so I'm inside now... But like I said she's quieting - at least the noise part!

Off to check cams....

That "anomaly"pic you posted looks like a double smoke ring to me...That's just showing off Etna!

If you are worried about dangerous gasses-get a canary,like they used to use in mines,the poor birds would act as the "GTFO!" indicator when they dropped dead.
That told the miners there was gas/not enough oxygen,and it was time to get out fast.
Put your canary in a garden enclosure,and make it part of your routine to glance at the bird from time to time.

Something that simple could be vital I think.

Stay safe and alert Silo and Lucie!
