The volcano remains active. While it has been mostly comparably most of the time, it is emitting lots of gas and steam, probably small explosions, and at night shows near constant glow.
Glowing lava bombs have landed on the outer slope
In addition, a powerful explosion occurred from its crater last night, at 20:54 local time.
The eruption lasted only a few minutes and was probably a vulcanian-type event. Glowing lava bombs landed on the outer slope of Anak Krakatau. Here's the event captured by the webcam still operating on the island:
