- Stromboli's Central Crater at its best: late April 2005 -
29 April + 1 May 2005: Mild activity from Stromboli's NE crater
|Candle-like explosions projecting glowing bombs to up to 150 m from a new cone in the central vent cluster of Stromboli volcano on 29 April, 2005. Other two glowing weakly spattering vents are visible in front of the cone towards the observer, as well as a second glowing (but not erupting) cone and weak spattering from a hidden vent at the right end of the crater (NE crater). Note the shadow of Stromboli island on the layer of clouds at low altitude on the r photo.|
A beautiful eruption from the central vent.
|The central and NE craters both in eruption.||5 glowing and erupting vents (Central and NE craters).|
|Rarely, the second spatter cone E of the Central crater vents erupts as well, in a similar fashion as the Central Crater.||The Central Crater cone.||A glowing, sometimes spattering pit is visible in front of the spatter cone at the Central Crater.|
