The New SE crater has calmed down. Only very occasionally, a weak glow appeared from the summit vent at night, suggesting deep-seated activity still occurs from time to time.

Tremor continues to decrease slowly after it had reached an impressive peak. The New SE crater continues to produce intermittent fountains and impressive lava bubble explosions and the lava flows continue to advance to the south and SE.
Update Thu 28 Nov 23:08
At the peak of the paroxysm, a lava flow starts to flow out from the saddle vent and forms a delta south of the SE crater complex advancing towards the camera's viewpoint, with two branches (to the S-SW and SE), similar as during the past paroxysms.
