Eruzione del vulcano Paluweh 2012: la nuova cupola lavica

The pictures show the new active lava dome of Paluweh volcano, which formed since late Oct 2012 next to the 1982 Rokatenda lava dome. The photos were taken during 30 Nov evening and 2 Dec 2012 morning when we visited the volcano from close range during our recent volcano expedition to Indonesia in Nov-Dec 2012.
