Time-lapse video of latest Etna eruption
A remarkable time-lapse video of the latest eruption by Mount Etna on Sicily has been posted on YouTube.
Klaus Dorschfeldt (KdEtna) shot the views from the village of Zafferana Etnea on the Italian island.
The extraordinary imagery captures the 13th eruptive event of the year on Etna, with tall ash clouds spewing from the mountain.
According to the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Etna generated a tall eruption column that was blown south-southeastward, producing ash and lapilli falls over the towns of Monterosso, Viagrande, Trecastagni, San Giovanni La Punta, and Catania. A small lava flow was also recorded.
