Mount Etna eruption

by Anonymous on Feb. 19th, 2013

Here's something to add warmth to a cold winter day. Mount Etna, the well-known stratovolcano on the island of Sicily erupted last night (February 19 Italy time) with a beautiful display of boiling hot lava fountains. Luckily, someone captured it on video so we can all enjoy it (with music, too!).

Mount Etna was particularly active last Saturday night (2-23-2013) as can be seen in a video at Wired.com. In case you miss it, the second page of the report gives you an idea of just how the high the lava fountains can go. Somewhat humbling.
