Lava Reaches the Surface at Indonesia’s Agung as Eruptions Continue

It appears that the small blast that happened earlier this week at Indonesia’s Agung was, in fact, the opening salvo of something more. New explosions happened today at Agung and in the dusk, a red glow from lava was clearly seen at the summit of the volcano, reflecting off the ash plume (see below). You can watch the eruption on a webcam pointed at Agung and the top image is a shot of the ashy plume seen on the morning of November 26. The PVMBG has moved Agung back to the Orange alert level
