Visited Bromo again on the 18th-20th October, mainly to observe the yearly peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower. However not many large and long-living meteors was observed. Only one bright one that lasted 1-2 sec. Photo is below.
Activity of the Volcano
This was my 5th visit this year. Activity in bromo has increased in 2015, compared to 2014. Gas emissions, especially sulphur outputs have increased in 2015. A constant rumbling sound could be heard during my visit to the crater on the 19th October, caused by what seems to be, intense gas pressure. The result of a increase of sulphur emissions can clearly be seen in the crater area (see photos from 19th October), where the sulphur emissions have colored the volcanic soil with a coat of yellow/green. A strong smell of Sulphur is often noticable as far as the village of Cemara Lowang and downwind in the villages East of the Tengger Caldera.
