Stromboli volcano (Italy): elevated activity in Jan 2019

In January 2019, magma levels inside Stromboli volcano's conduits rise almost to the rim, producing spectacular activity from several vents. In particular, a large cinder cone has been growing from the NE vent.
The photo shown here illustrate this activity as observed during the evening of 20 Jan 2019. You can find a activity report here.
