25 June 2024 | Etna volcano, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, has been showing impressive stombolic activity again for a few days now. The central summit crater has come back to life with spectacular lava fountains and the ejection of lapilli (small volcanic pebbles). These eruptions create a breathtaking spectacle, delighting locals and tourists alike.

Volcanic Activity

Etna’s recent eruptions have been characterised by a series of stombolic explosions, known for their regular intervals of eruptions and lava fountains. This form of volcanic activity is named after the island of Stromboli, which is also known for such eruptions. Etna’s lava fountains reach impressive heights and illuminate the night sky with a red glow, while lapilli descend like a rain of fire on the volcano’s flanks.
