Fireworks at Stromboli volcano, Italy. The photo was taken in spring 2009 and shows an explosion from Stromboli's NE crater in the evening twilight. In the first half of 2009 in particular, this crater was in spectacular, vigorous activity. It had quickly built a tall cone, changing and dominating the crater terrace of Stromboli, and although more changes have happened, it is still one of the main features of the crater today.

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)

Unusually powerful eruption at Stromboli volcano as seen on April 4, 2009 - bombs are reaching the Pizzo area (where visitors usually observe the volcano). The decision to temporarily close access to the summit was certainly right.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

A very powerful eruption showers the whole crater with bombs, and probably reaches the Pizzo as well. The heavy bombardment results in glowing rockfalls lasting for more than a minute on the Sciara del Fuoco, with many bombs reaching the sea. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
