Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano and the beautiful backdrop for our Sicilian citrus grove webcam, has erupted for the first time in months, sending a stunning fiery show of lava into the night sky.
The eruption began on Monday, February 27, and can be seen from the Arcoria citrus grove farm in Paternò, Sicily, where our webcam is located. Giosuè Arcoria, the owner of the citrus grove, tells us that “this happens multiple times per year” and that “the spectacle is very beautiful, fantastic and charming”.
Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano at 3,330 metres (10,926 feet), has been largely dormant for the past several months, with its last major eruption occurredoccurring in 1992. Local officials have reported that this eruption does not pose a threat to the towns located on the mountain.
The eruption eased by Tuesday evening, but could continue for days or even weeks.
