You caught the ‘strange color’ great in this one.
Now on to where the anomaly is?

See the middle mountain that slopes up and to the right? The highest point on the middle mountain is where the anomaly is.

I got info last night there was some lava flow on the side we can’t see. I’m still looking into it all.

Thanks tons for taking the time to post the pics and add to the thread. You're contribution is appreciated.

I can’t get much closer than this without boots and gear.
I’m still trying to catch that color - this is as close as I’m going to get without tinting and I’ll not do that (the color is less pink than it shows here).

So - our ‘Vulcanessa’ is still dancing (ongoing tremors) - but nothing dramatic - just a constant shaking.
I’ll keep trying to get that color - if she keeps it up - which she shows promise of doing.

After going through more captures - here's one that's about as close as we're going to get.

So - now to site back and wait.

On Volcano Discovery

Ash plume rising from the (hidden) NE crater of Etna this morning (Etna Trekking webcam Schiena dell'Asino) Current tremor signal (ESLN station, INGV Catania) Current tremor signal (ESLN station, INGV Catania) Update Thu 09 Jan 08:49 The activity of the volcano has remained similar to the previous days: so far, relatively weak but more or less steady ash emissions are occurring at the North-East crater, and tremor continues its slow rise. Whether this is a precursor to more vigorous activity (from the New SE crater?) remains to be seen probably in the coming days.

There's a pic too but from far side I think ?

Looks to me that's almost exactly to the opposite side of where I went up to catch some pics.
Now we've got her covered from all sides!

She's still the same this morning - those long slow 'puffs' of off colored ash. I really can't help thinking the 'big' crater is clearing itself out in ready for... What?

WOW! If I narrow my eyes just so...and breathe deeply....I can almost smell the lady's breath from your photos!

(Where's the "applause" thingy?)

Oh! Diggindirt - Don’t breath too deep - the ‘strange colored ash’ is in the air here and you’ll cough your lungs out!

This morning her ash was back to regular old dirty dirt color - basic black, lol.

Since noon the winds have changed and so has Etna - the big crater is chuffing the almost salmon color grit and it’s finally my turn to get a dose of it.

Pics later when the light changes.

You have a great day.

Aaah I know I've said this before, I've got a winter holiday planned for early 2015. No plans to go anywhere this summer, I'm sooo tempted to have a week in Sicily so I can go see this lovely lady (I mean etna, not your silo lol sorrrrry)

Etna is the closest active volcano to me I just want to be in her presence when she lets off a nice cloud and loads of booms!

Thanks again for your work silo keep it going!

Let me talk to Etna and get a schedule of her Spring eruptions and get back to you. Har Har.... Yeah, that’s the problem.

It would be fantastic if you could visit - really - but...but but but... How do we get Herself to cooperate?

Sure, there’s a million and more other things to do on the Island - but if you’re coming here for Etna? That’s a tough one to schedule.

Like now. She’s been acting ‘strange’ for days. Strange ash. Strange tremors. Strange that it’s her ‘big’ crater doin’ all the work and the ‘other one’ - little Miss Troublesome - just sitting there looking...dead. How can you plan a trip around that!

Regardless, I’m always willing to send you links of places to go, things to see, logistics of rental cars and all that... Call me the ATS vacation planner for Sicily - whatever. And no, no cost - just tope you have a wonderful time.

I appreciate it, it's something I'm considering
just to see her without an eruption would be nice the views looks beautiful

Maybe if I bring a large pointy stick with me and prod the ground around etna I might make her a bit grumpy she may blow off some smoke for me

But if i so decide to travel then I'll message you and get some information. Thanks a lot, stay safe!

I was wondering where you disappeared to. LOL

Just wondering if you saw this? It beautiful!!

She’s back to ‘normal’...

I was half expecting an eruption due to the moon phase but she’s done exactly opposite - gone ‘normal’.

No more ‘strange colored ash’.

Tremors down.

So - there goes that full moon theory!


Sled: Yes, I saw the link - thanks for that I commented in your thread!

So cool to be able to kick back with camera at the ready..... Sort of like a mystery movie, what will she do to make you jump, but live and waiting in anticipation!!!

Thanks Silo for all the updates and photos. very nice very nice indeed...

Now tell us you have an escape route should The Mystery widens her presence?

Silo rule No. 1 - Be on the ready to move move move

Thanks for sharing with us...

Perhaps she is waiting till I get out of hospital so I can enjoy her views lol or not

posted on Jan, 17 2014 @ 01:20 PM
She must be due anytime now for another uptick; guessing from activity over the past year

Hello Silo,
I have been enjoying your thread and especially the pictures for quite a while now.
Since I have finally started posting on ATS after lurking for so long, I wanted to say Thank You.
Please stay safe and keep us all that order!
Thank you again
