Anak Krakatau observed from Palau Rakata (4.-8. June 2009)
The activity of Anak Krakatau was very variable in June 2009: very low activity lasted for many hours followed by intense strombolian activity, again lasting several hours; finally periods of violent vulcanian eruptions ocurred once every ten to twenty minutes for about one hour.
Fishermen resting within the Krakatau caldera observe mild strombolian activity.
Some eruptions directed towards the East cover the old crater rim with many bombs.

Sequence of three photos of a big vulcanian eruption at noon of 5. June.
Bombs 10 metres in diameter erupted from the crater on the right impact on the cone's flank.
While some bombs are still flying, others impacts on all the flanks of the cone.
Another vulcanian eruption at noon of 5. June, this time directed towards the west.
Mild strombolian activity at the cinder cone inside the new summit crater.
Mild strombolian activity erupts bombs into the 2007 crater at lower left.
After sunset, during dusk on 7. June, the activity constantly increases.
In the night, vulcanian blasts throw bombs right to our observation point on Anak (lower right corner).
