Etna volcano update: View of the central summit crater

VIew of Etna's Bocca Nuova (foreground) and Voragine behind
The volcano has remained calm, at least on the surface, during the past weeks. During a visit of the summit region this morning, we had a fine view of the central crater complex (Bocca Nuova and Voragine), completely filled by the lava erupted during the paroxysm in May 2016.
Degassing from circular fractures around the main vent in Voragine crater, the New SE crater and NE crater are at normal (intense) levels.
