Mostly employees of UN and NGOs from all over the world but all working in Goma (I was the only tourist) watch the night show. Note that so much gas was expelled from the crater and the strong glow indicated lava lake inside the crater that night photography was very difficult due to overexposure with flying rocks being mostly lost within the glowing plume (night video however is excellent).
