Nyamuragira volcano (DR Congo) eruption 2011 photos: 19-20 November

Our friend Paul Hloben visited the eruption site on 19-20 November (special permit was needed to stay more than one night). A selection of his photos are here. He notes: "The eruption changed from the earlier continuous lava fountaining to almost continuous strombolian-type activity (blasts every second or so). According GVO weekly reports it seems a normal development. This type of activity was exactly what Haroun Tazieff described seeing N-gira in the spring of 1948 in Crateres en Feu: “Every twitch of anger was followed by a brief moment of calm. Brown or blue, the smoke rose in heavy spirals, while a deafening roar, similar to a monstrous hound, rocked the volcano. The nerves had no time to relax, so close was another sudden tremor, another explosion, the return of the incandescence, start of a new volley. The bombs of lava rose with a drone.”
We observed from south (as per Virunga NP blog description). There were definitely 3 craters erupting along the approximately WE fissure (not 100% sure about the direction). There was probably one or 2 more vents spitting lava, difficult to say (as per my video scrutinizing)."
