Great photos posted yesterday by ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst illustrate the Anak Krakatau's activity of the last days, and his change since 21 September.

The Aura / IMO satellite has reported sulfur dioxide emissions on 23 September to the northwest and south of Sumatra.
The PVMBG reports for September 24, 69 earthquakes eruption and a continuous tremor of dominant amplitude at 45 mm.
The alert level remains at 2 / Waspada, with a 2 km forbidden zone.

Etna has been active in recent days in three of its summit craters: the NSEC "Puttusiddu", the Bocca Nuova, and the northeast crater.
On September 20th, an overflight of the Bocca Nuova showed an incandescent mouth (photo Joseph Nasi / Butterfly helicopters)
On September 24, Boris Behncke reported small explosions in the northeast, with ejection of blocks, bombs and ashes, from one of the internal mouths; on September 23, another mouth showed Strombolian activity.

Etna 24.09.2018 / 9:45 - EMOT thermal webcam - in the absence of a scale, not easy to interpret at my level ... to note that Mirova reports a thermal anomaly between 6 and 12 MW on 24.09
At the Piton de La Fournaise, the images of the webcam shows a modification to the active cone:
The OVPF, in its report of 24.09 / 16h indicated a cone still riddled towards the south, with a lava flow very channeled.
By comparing the images of the webcam during the night, with a beautiful lava flow, and that of the early afternoon, when the casting seems inactive, a clear change occurred.
More news is expected from volcanologists ... the tremor, after a slight increase on 23.09, has returned to a relatively stable level and surface flow rates are still between 1 and 3 m³ per second.
