I just saw another black column of smoke erupt on the live feed here I showed it to my
grandmother as well she is up in her age and she did say 'Oh the end of the world is upon us.' But I don't put too much weight on that statement. Is
that glowing lave we could see on the right side of the mountain, below the smoke? I have read something about volcanoes, is this one opening new
vents as a sign of new (catastrophic?) activity? All in all this eruption looks rather awesome right now. I wish we had volcanoes near Moscow.
I'm recording it since a day ago with my VLC. I do hope I can find a tool to accelerate the video and make a time-lapse. I'll upload it on YouTube and
link the video here when I can find a free video acceleration tool. (AVS Video Editor hangs up on me.)

Darn, that is a lot of smoke and possibly ash. Such a marvelous sight to behold! I bet it would all rush down the mountainside quickly in some form of
avalanche, or maybe a lava lahar? Exciting, I can barely sit still in my chair!

It looks like something is happening now. I'm not an expert in any way on volcanoes but it looks like there is now what appears to be white smoke
(ash) coming out of the cap of the volcano. It has almost fully covered the top of it almost making it look like a mountain with snow on top. I'm
sorry if my words are a little messed up, I'm trying to type and watch at the same time.
Somebody get this volcano some lotion. All joking aside, I hope if it erupts the people below have time to get to safety. Why people build towns
around volcanoes (and people actually move into these towns) is a mystery to me.
Edit: Yes, I do realize that some communities live even closer to volcanoes, I was speaking in general.

Edit2: I guess I shouldn't have said something is happening NOW as it has been doing this for awhile. I see people saying "View came 3" could someone
explain how you can switch cams? I know how to switch to an entire different area or a different location but I don't see an option to view a
different cam on this particular volcano.
