Etna released another picturesque wave of lava. A Sicilian volcano lit up the sky over Catania on Sunday. Volcanic activity in the southeastern crater also produced small amounts of ash, Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said.
On the night from Friday to Saturday, Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, she spewed out lava and clouds of dust. The fiery streams contrasted wonderfully with the snow-covered slopes of the cone. As it turned out, we didn’t have to wait long for the next “performance” of the Sicilian volcano.
Lava and clouds of dust
On Sunday night, near the Sicilian city of Catania, a photographer managed to capture a small eruption of Mount Etna. The eruption was once again harmless – as the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) reported on Sunday morning, volcanic activity was limited to the crater area. The eruption, which occurred in the southeastern crater, was accompanied by a small emission of volcanic ash. Clouds of dust quickly dispersed into the atmosphere.
Etna, rising to approximately 3,357 meters above sea level, is the highest volcano in Europe. IN cone area relatively often an eruption occursseismic activity related to volcanism is also recorded there.
