Italy’s Mount Etna volcano spews lava into night sky

Mount Etna provided spectacular scenes last night.

Mount Etna, the active volcano on the east coast of Sicily, provided spectacular eruptions on the night of 15 February, following a day of explosive activity.

Lava emerged from the south-eastern crater on the summit area as well as from the Bocca Nuova, Voragine and north-east craters, announced the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV).

The source of the tremor is located below the south-east crater, at a depth of about 2,900m, according to INGV.

Mount Etna, at 3,329 metres high, is the tallest active volcano in Europe.
