Batu Tara (Sunda Islands, Indonesia): (12 Dec) During our recent expedition to Batu Tara, we witnessed a spectacular increase in activity during the night 3-4 Nov, culminating in a small pyroclastic flow triggered by a collapsing lava fountain and increased effusive activity from the dome. Andi and Till managed to capture the event on photos.
