3rd Nov.: Standing at the south side of the Td’F. being protected by a thick congrete ceiling the variety of erupting forms were not countable. Exact bright candles, chaotic fire mushrooms, lightning fingers and the liquid lava in the bottom zone of this big bowl was so stunned that Martin was certainly brought one kg  6 x 7cm films through his Pentax.In the early morning he said.” My fingers are hurting so much, and I think this must come from unpacking plenty of this damned film rolls”. Smiling to him by knowing this situation as well I commented: “Yes, it’s better to take one picture more…….

7.00: Like candles the lava was forced up to 250 - 500 meters. The impressive ash and lapilli cloud leaving in the south eastern direction damped the sunlight and made it possible that the fountains could be seen intensive red .  

The more or less surprising thing was, that at November 25 the little crater in the foreground shows a new explosive activity. This information I got from the Update of Boris Behncke which is linked at the bottom of this page. Here you can read also that the whole activity in the Southern areal is still going on.
