The last photo is taken at 3:37 a.m. Boris Behncke captures from his balcony the impressive explosions of the south-eastern crater of Etna. The sky above her house looks purple. A new climax, an episode of an eruptive intensity as violent as it was brief, began in the evening.
In the middle of the night, clouds obscure the view of the Sicilian volcano. The scientist therefore continues his study from a laptop computer in a small room contiguous to the balcony and moved into a control center. Infrared cameras allow him to still observe the blasts despite the capricious weather. The data is transmitted to it live from the Etna Observatory, in the center of Catania, about ten kilometers further south.
