25-26 June 2011


Anak Krakatau had not shown much activity since January/February 2011, so I made a trip as fast I got news that it had started had entered a new phase of eruptions. Spent the night on the beach on one of the remaining islands from the old Krakatau, that blew up in 1886. The intervals between the eruptions were between 30min to 4 hours, and during the night I only successfully caught 3. The eruptions with visual lava bombs being thrown out of the crater, only lasted for approximately 10 seconds. Interestingly I also observed local lightning above the crater during the night.

State: Active.

Intervals between eruptions: 30min to 4 hours.

Type of activity: Possible volcanian eruption seen. A few small pyroclastic flows. Lava bombs and volcanic blocks ejected during eruptions. Lightning seen in the ash-plume during night.
