Mount Etna, on the island of Sicily, Italy, has long been one of Europe’s most active volcanoeseruptions have been observed here for approximately 3,500 years.

The most recent series of eruptions were initiated during the early morning hours of February 19, 2013, when glowing fountains of lava erupted from Mount Etna’s southeast crater.

Four separate outbursts were recorded within about a 48-hour period. Even though eruptions of Etna (about 10,900 ft or 3,325 m) occur quite frequently, it hasn’t exploded with successive episodes such as this since at least 2000.
