Etna New SE crater paroxysm 16-17 Nov 2013: videos

Etna volcano New SE crater paroxysm #16 16-17 Nov 2013: lava fountains
As expected, another paroxysmal eruption took place at the New SE crater over night. This marks the 16th such event in 2013.
The main phase lasted about 5 hours between midnight and shortly before dawn. It consisted of violent pulsating lava fountains reaching 300-600 m height, thundering explosions of giant magma bubbles that ejected large glowing, liquid spatter to hundreds of meters distance in radial directions, and the effusion of several lava flows.
