Caption: Volcanic eruption. Night view of a lava fountain eruption on Stromboli. The bright lines show the trajectories of lava bombs, blocks of molten rock, thrown out by the volcano. Two human figures silhouetted at lower left give a sense of scale. Despite the impressive size of this lava fountain, Stromboli presents little danger. Almost permanently active, the volcano is releasing gas and lava pressure gradually and is thus very unlikely to erupt explosively. Stromboli is 924 metres high, and forms an island to the north of Sicily.
