Eruption began on Sunday but wasn’t serious enough to trigger an evacuation of the mountain villages nearby

It did, however, cause a temporary closure of two air space corridors in Catania, the busiest airport on Sicily

The stunning pyrotechnic display was the first of the year, with much of the activity coming from a region in the south-east side of the volcano

Time-lapse video of Etna volcano’s activity at the New SE crater during the night 22-23 Jan 2014. Accompanied by rising tremor, strombolian activity from the summit vent gradually increased and at around 23:00 local time, 2 effusive vents on the fissure cutting through the eastern side of the cone open, feeding 2 small lava flows. Activity at the flank vents then decreases again.

The plume of smoke has reached a height of more than three kilometers there was a “rain” of lava stones.

Volcano Etna, Eruption November 16th and 17th 2013

The best moments from the movie footage of Etna’s latest eruptive episode (paroxysm) during the night of 16-17 November 2013, including some of the finest exploding lava bubbles  ever captured on film (00:35, 01:01, 01:37, 02:05, 02:35), and a lot of haunting volcano noise. In particular, listen to the tremendous detonations at 00:56, 03:25, 04:48, and 05:10; these are certainly the best sound recordings obtained so far of such events. Have fun clicking on the times indicated for the detonations to hear them one after the other, and you’ll discover that they sound very different (which is certainly due to the fact that they were recorded at different locations). But the best bit comes last (starting at 05:43) …

A new paroxysm : Etna’s Eruption Up Close

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 8, 2011 by THE BOLDCORSICANFLAME AND CAPITAINE FLAMME INTREPIDE

A new paroxysm (nr 9 in 2011) from the “New SE crater” of Etna is occurring at the time of writing. Following a brief period of intermittent weak explosions starting mid-day today, strombolian activity started to increase sharply the evening of 5 August; activity has now reached near continuous low lava fountaining and is likely to increase in the next hour(s). A lava flow has started to descend into the Valle del Bove. Our team member Marco Fulle is on location documenting this spectacular event.
