Great work with those pictures! Nice to see someone not just coming on making stories up for attention, but just sitting back and watching mother nature take its course...oh and sharing it with us too!

On another note I see Japan is getting another earthquake as we speak. Peace be with them, hope its nothing major.

I love seeing it from your point of view (and getting to see Luci on video!) You have such a sweet voice....and so CALM!
I would be freaking seriously! Does it seem to be letting up at all? It's around 1 am there right? I wouldn't be able to sleep if I were there

Here is the report on yesterday's eruption.

Edited from INGV and from our data.
This eighth paroxysm of the year 2011 was the most intense episode with sustained lava fountains. These were different from the previous episodes whose fountains were rather pulsating and rarely exceeded 250-300 m in height. During the phase of maximum intensity, fragments of fluid lava were violently thrown to heights of about 450-500 m ( 1, 640 feet) above the crater rim, causing heavy fallout onto the external flanks of the pyroclastic cone to a distance of 200-300 m. The lava flow emitted during this episode were longer than those of all paroxysms except for the first one, reaching the gently sloping terrain immediately to the north and northeast of Monte Centenari. Lava fountains were jetting from at least two vents located within the crater and on its upper east flank.
From 23.30 local time onward, the eruptive activity started to decrease in intensity, and ceased completely shortly after midnight.

This image was from Cam 1 then colourised from black and white.

No not yet, I think she will be sweeping up. I wouldn't worry about how your posts look, mine was full of spelling errors. Trying to type and watch at the same time. Thanks for you input last night.

No prob.....I am still keeping an eye on it though, because there's a lot of smoke still spewing. I hope for Silo's sake it stays quiet.

Tzavros, am I wrong or is it looking pretty scary again?

There is a very tiny rise on the data. I will read again in 30 minutes. She will make a lot of smoke. Just need to keep an eye on those cams,

OK...I've been watching and will continue to as much as possible...let me know if you find anything ok? This is fascinating and another reason I'm keeping up with it is Silo....she said don't worry, but I do anyway!

Amazing isn't it? The experts say she will blow again. With Etna you never know when. Everything looks like she is asleep then boom! up She goes.
Data looks normal for Etna, no peeks or wobbles at the moment.

I just started seeing red hues under the smoke, is that lava? Look on the top pic on the live cam.

This is what I just saw...is that lava? If so does that mean anything like it is erupting again?
