Our friend Michael Dalton-Smith flew over Lengai 10 Oct 2010 and snapped a few shots of the crater. There were some recent small lava flows inside the new crater. Also there we signs that new cone has had some more minor collapses on the inside. He could not tell 100%, but there looks like a small lava lake.

Over the past three weeks, Lengai has quietened down significantly. Observers report a complete pause in activity lasting about two weeks, and then resuming of relatively small ash eruptions. A thermal anomaly is still visibile on satellite date in the crater of the ash cone. [mehr]

Lengai's activity has been continuing to increase. Over the past days, several ash eruptions have produced plumes up to more than 10km height, the largest one possibly being on 4 March rising to about 14 km, as evident from satellite data, observations by passing aircraft and spectacular photos taken from the ground posted on Fred Belton's website. ...

A small group from VolcanoDiscovery, local mountain guides and partners stayed near and on Lengai volcano during 17-21 January. During this period, Lengai continued to erupt ash to several 100 meters above the new ash cone during phases lasting several hours alternating with periods of quiet when only a weak plume of very fine gray ash and gas was issuing out of the new ash cone. ...
