Eruption of August-September-October 2015
Wow, decidedly, the volcano was really capricious during 2015. This was the 4th eruption to occur!!! Also it will have been the longest eruption, with just over two months of activity.
Like the first two of the year, it was located on the southern flank of the volcano. But, since the break was just behind the Rivals crater, it was more easily observable than the previous ones.
To get there, you just had to follow the Rivals crater path. The cone was located just behind it. After a few days, like in all eruptions, only an eruptive cone persisted on the break.
At the beginning, the cone was only 10 to 15 meters high. At the end of the eruption, it had doubled in size… The size of the eruptive cone changes the range of the projections. It is therefore necessary to be careful not to be within reach of a shot.
In total, I got closer to the eruption four times. And each time, its topography and physiognomy were different, as were those of the eruptive cone.
Each time I moved closer, I had a different vision because, although being only mineral, the landscape changed, everything moved as if it was alive!!!!
Somewhere, during a volcanic eruption, it’s the beating heart of the planet that we feel, the pulse of our Earth that we take.
