The western crater has two vents; the one to the N (right), a narrow glowing hole, sometimes erupts strong vertical jets of lava, accompanied by detonation sounds. This one is relatively large and ejects lava bombs to more than 200 m. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

A powerful vulcanian-type explosion shakes the ground. Many incandescent bombs are thrown many hundreds of meters into the night sky, and many of them land outside the crater. Note, that most blocks are actually NOT glowing, making a further approach to Bromo quite dangerous. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
