I did a trip to 's youngest on Sunday... and wow, it's really hard to explain what it feels like to be witnessing something like that first hand.

*A small picture thread*

It's already grown so much in its first week of life! It supposedly emits 20m³ per second.

The lava-covered area around it seems cool, but most of it is hot underneath. And everyone once in a while fresh lava spills over the rest, re-melting it. Basically up to where you are sitting and watching.

During an otherwise sunny day, suddenly a small snow-storm appeared and created this absolutely surreal moment.

This is about as close as one can get to the "mountain" currently. They expect the entire valley (including all the places I took pictures from) to be covered by lava in two weeks.

This video shows the in action. Digital zoom is of course not the best, but I do think you get an impression of what was going on 🌋

Of course embedding your own video doesn't work. Youtube links OTOH are automatically turned into video widgets. 🤬

In this clip, you can see new lava flowing over the old lava and re-melting it. I found it quite fascinating to watch!
