Autumn 2010: Strong Activity

On 27th November 2010, Magmatrek guide Mario Pruiti and Marco Fulle led a TV crew from Japan on Pizzo. The activity was very strong, with about fifty eruptions observed in the evening, many of which ejecting scoria higher than Pizzo. This strong activity has been going on since October, when several short-lived lava flows were erupted by a hornito on the Sciara del Fuoco rim and crossed the crater terrace towards the central craters. The focal length of the camera lenses is given with each photo (DSLR, 16x24mm sensor)

f=10mm. Sunset on Pizzo with, Salina (left) and crater terrace (lower right).
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=85mm. Continuous and intensive spattering from the main vent in the SW crater.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. Stronger eruption at the SW vent. A rough aa flow between central and NE craters.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. Mild spattering at SW crater and glowing vents in the two NE craters.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. Simultaneous eruptions from two vents in the lower NE crater and a strong one from the SW crater.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. The upper NE crater also erupts lava jets from two vents. The SW crater continues its strong eruptions.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. Some scoria from the lower NE crater rise as high as the horizon as well. Fainter eruption from the central crater.
Autumn 2010: Strong Activity
f=20mm. The Grand Finale: this impressive eruption from the SW crater drops bombs all over the crater terrace.
