Stromboli volcano (Italy) erupts in spectacular fireworks – January 2019

Rates : 21

A very strong strombolian explosion from Stromboli volcano on the evening of 20 Jan 2019 from the westernmost vents. Glowing bombs are flying far above the horizon, i.e. reach much more than 150 m height, probably close to 250-300 m for some. Stromboli has been in an elevated state of activity since early January 2019, and there is plenty of evidence that magma is standing high inside its conduits. Stromboli volcano news:
