March 2006

Night of 29/30 March - The glow was almost absent from last night's images, apart from a large outburst in activity at 23:30 last night and for about 2 hours afterwards. This corresponded with a larger tremor, clearly visible on the webicorder traces just after 23:29. The first animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second) and only the images for the two hours of the event are included (the glow just wasn't visible at any other time during the night).

Night of 26/27 March - The glow from the lavadome was visible for much of the night, and there were two larger outbursts of activity around 00:44 and 03:05. The first animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 24/25 March - The glow from the lavadome was visible at sunset then obscured by clouds until 23:40. Then it was visible for the rest of the night. Both animations below show enhanced images from the Volcanocam, with the second showing them superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second) and the period from 19:40 to 23:40 edited out as there was nothing to see!

Night of 23/24 March - The lavadome was visible in the images from sunset until around midnight last night and the glow was relatively constant throughout. There were no significant outbursts observed. The first animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 18/19 March - The clouds parted after 01:30 and the glow from the lavadome was visible intermittently until sunrise. The animation below shows enhanced images from the Volcanocam and the animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 12/13 March - The almost full moon illuminated the mountain on last nights images, showing clouds passing the mountain and the glow from the lavadome intermittently. Unfortunately, there appears that there was a communications problem, with most of the images from 01:30 until sunrise not being transmitted to the Volcanocam server. The animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second). But note that there is a large jump in time from 01:10 to 04:20, then only sporadic images until sunrise.

Night of 11/12 March - Despite the clouds the glow from the lavadome was visible for much of last night. Although it appears the clouds only parted early this morning, prior to that the glow can clearly be seen through the cloud cover. The animation below shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 04/05 March - The crater was visible from sunset until around 01:30 this morning and the lavadome was very active for the entire time. Multiple glows were visible and several outbursts in activity were recorded, as shown in this image combining all of the outbursts into one frame. The largest outburst appeared to correspond with a larger tremor just before 23:30. The first animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 03/04 March - The mountain was obscured by clouds for most of the night apart from an hour early in the evening. The first animation below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows enhanced images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. Only the frames where the glow was visible are included. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).

Night of 02/03 March - The night kicked off with a small outburst from the lavadome and it remained quite active throughout the night. The first movie below shows the processed images at the approximate brightness as seen in the Volcanocam images and the second shows the same images superimposed over a daytime image of the crater for reference. The animation speed is set at 6 fps (equivalent of half an hour in real time per second).
