11 Oct 19h f=28mm from Pizzo. Simulatenous eruptions lasting half a minute from two vents in the NE crater.
11 Oct 19h f=28mm from Pizzo. The jets of bombs from the NE cone are much higher than Pizzo (about 250m tall).
11 Oct 20h f=28mm from Pizzo. Another cone in the central crater erupts jets with few bombs and a lot of gas.

More on VolcanoDiscovery
Igneous or magmatic rocks
: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Nyiragongo volcano photos
: Nyiragongo (DR Congo) has the world's largest and most active lava lake. Enjoy our pictures taken during several expeditions over the past years.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
