- Stromboli's New Year fireworks: 30 Dec. 2005 and 1 of January 2006 -
30 December 2006: Preparation
VolcanoDiscovery members Tom Pfeiffer and Karen Blatchford decided to
spend New Year 2005/2006 on Stromboli together. Here's why:-)
|Jets of the NW crater vent, lasting up to 20 seconds throw glowing spatter (red in daylight) to up to 100-150 meters that day; the sound is surprisingly low, but resembles a jet engine. (TP)||Beautiful explosions from the SW cone in the central crater, partially hidden by intense steam forming on the crater. (TP / KB)|
|SW cone eruption and illuminated steam (TP / KB)||Long exposures made impossible due to the strong glow and heavy steam; an eruption from the central crater (TP).||Night-time eruption from the NW crater and glow from the SW cone of the central crater (TP).|
