Etna showed another paroxysm yesterday. Number 6 in 2013.
ScienzaObsoleta poinzed to a wonderfull video :
Schteve and me watched the LAVE cam during the following night
where lava could be seen glowing and moving!
Please check the photostream by Etnaboris a.k.a. Dr Boris Behncke on Flickr. His does not only have wonderful images but also writes detailed comments to his photos which describe the happenings very well.
Greg put his script, which he had explained in his post Capturing Timelapse Videos in Windows, Author Greg, February 13th to use and captured a timelapse of Etnas behavior yesterday. In the end one can clearly see a lava flow which, i am sure would have been missed without the timelapse.
Here some usefull Etna inks, because evn though they are in the crows nest and have been mentioned a few times before, people keep missing them.

Neither Kilgharra now Alan sent riddles. So i am sorry but it looks like there wont be any this weekend.

Erik Klemetti had covered this volcano on its remote island on February 5th. on his blog eruptions.
Irpsit is watching Thordarhyrna
Quote:” …And let us remember that Thordarhyrna is just next door to Laki, and it is at this spot where the chamber that erupted Laki is located.
Usually the mechanisms is this: Grimsvotn can feed eruptions at Thordarhyrna;and Thordarhyrna can feed eruptions at Laki. Often eruptions are moderate size, VEI2 to 4, but only rarely of the size of Laki. Last eruptions there were in 1887, 1903 and 1910. So its about time to expect a medium size explosive and lava eruption there.
Its also worth watching especially after the last eruption of Grimsvotn where tremor persisted long after the eruption was finished, and that points to the system being filled with new fresh magma, which probably intruded into the southwest towards Thordarhyrna and Laki. But I do not fear any eruption from Laki, just Thordarhyrna.
Thordarhyrna by the way (as is Laki) is considered a part of Grimsvotn.
And to complicate things further, Thordarhyrna is connected by a fault to Hamarinn. So like Gjálp (between Grimsvotn and Bardarbunga), this fault, where earthquakes occurred today, could mark a movement of magma from Hamarinn towards Thordarhyrna or vice-versa (less likely)
Worth watching since these last days there were many deep quakes under Bardarbunga and Grimsvotn and more shallow ones under Thordarhyrna. Just like a fissural intrusion would be predicted to occur.”
