Galeras volcano, Colombia: eruption started
Galeras volcano started erupting on the morning of Thanksgiving Day (Thursday 24th of Nov. 2005) with a moderate (phreatic?) ash eruption that lasted 30 minutes and produced heavy ash falls on the city of Pasto, about 18 km (12 miles) away. There were no seismic precursors according to Colombia's Volcanology Institute.

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.
Etna's steam rings
: A collection of fantastic vortex rings ("smoke rings") we observed recently on Etna.
Kelut volcano's lava dome in 2007
