High-impact eruption to 14 km (46 000 feet) a.s.l. at Semeru volcano, Indonesia

A high-impact eruption took place at Semeru volcano, Indonesia at around 12:25 UTC on May 16, 2020. The Aviation Color Code was raised to Red. The eruption comes just three hours after a short-lived, high-level eruption at Ibu volcano, Halmahera. The Aviation Color Code for Ibu was also raised to Red
The eruption ejected ash up to 14 km (46 000 feet) above sea level, drifting east.

"The eruption seems to be ongoing," the Darwin VAAC reported at 12:45 UTC. "Model winds suggest volcanic ash below 6 km (20 000 feet) a.s.l. may move SW at 9 km/h (6 mph). However, low-levels are obscured by the meteorological cloud."

Short-lived, high-level eruption at Ibu volcano, ash to 13.7 km (45 000 feet) a.s.l., Indonesia

A short-lived, high-level eruption took place at Indonesian Ibu volcano, Halmahera at 09:20 UTC on May 16, 2020. The Aviation Color Code was raised to Red.

According to the Darwin VAAC, the eruption to 13.7 km (45 000 feet) above sea level moving S was short-lived and appears to have ceased and detached from the volcano. Volcanic ash is expected to dissipate in 6 to 12 hours.

Height and forecast were based on Himawari-8 imagery acquired 10:20 UTC and model guidance.

This from AccuWeather on the Kilauea, Halema‘uma‘u crater. A lake is building...

Photos taken 1 year apart show potentially troubling sign in volcano
By John Murphy,
May 17, 2020 4:49 PM



The Halema‘uma‘u crater on Kilauea, located in Hawaii, has been relatively quiet over the last year after a frenzy of activity in 2018, which all began with an explosive eruption of ash 30,000 feet into the air during May. But, since at least 2019, there has been a change that scientists believe could pose a potential danger to the Big Island. Water has started to collect in the caldera to form a lake.

A caldera is a large crater left behind in a volcano after an eruption. From 2010 until 2018, a lava lake had filled the caldera rather than water. That changed in May 2018 when the eruption caused the lava lake to drain, collapsing the caldera floor and causing a hole nearly as deep as the 1,776-foot One World Trade Center. The eruption also created a 459-foot cliff (140 meters) north of the crater.

About a year later, a helicopter pilot flying over the volcano noticed a mysterious green pool of water in the Halema‘uma‘u crater. A second report of the same findings from a helicopter passenger prompted USGS-Hawaiian Volcano Observatory researchers to survey the green pool of water.

It was then discovered that water had indeed started to pool into the lowest part of the Halema'uma'u crater, and ever since the water was discovered in 2019, the depth of the lake has been steadily growing.

“We know that the crater floor dropped a little more than 70 meters below the water table in 2018. Any time that you punch a hole below the level of the water table, water is eventually going to come in and fill that hole,” explained Don Swanson, a volcanologist at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

Currently, the water has an area larger than five football fields combined and is approximately 100 feet (30 meters) deep, according to NASA's Earth Observatory.

The water has also changed color from the original chalky green to a rusty brown, due to chemical reactions happening in the water.

As for how the water could affect a future eruption of the volcano, Swanson said it could contribute to an explosive eruption, since one of the main factors behind a big volcanic explosion is the amount of water and other gases that get caught up inside the magma.

“In one case, magma could rise quickly up the conduit and intersect with the lake,” said Swanson. "In the second, the crater floor could collapse and drop all of the water down to a zone where it would be quickly heated into steam.”

While an explosive eruption remains possible for Kilauea, Swanson said the next eruption could also happen slowly and all the water could evaporate.

“We do not want to be alarmist, but we also need to point out to the public that there is an increasing possibility of explosive eruptions at Kilauea,” said Swanson.

Only time will tell what is in store for Kilauea, but for now, the volcano is being closely researched and monitored by geologists.

I have a somewhat personal question:

Do you think it is a good idea to stay on the Canary Islands in the coming years, taking into account the probability of Earth Changes?

The islands are not on any fault line, unlike the Ring of Fire, and most of them have been erupting maybe once a century or so.

There is also the possibility of a megatsunami through a massive landslide on La Palma, though there are wildly different estimates at how likely or massive it would be.

I really like the place itself and so far do not feel any urge to move away, but would like to hear what others think.

Indonesia's Mount Sinabung blasts tower of smoke and ash into sky


MEDAN: Indonesia's Mount Sinabung erupted on Monday (Aug 10), belching a massive column of ash and smoke 5,000m into the air and coating local communities in debris.

The volcano on Sumatra island has been rumbling since 2010 and saw a deadly eruption in 2016.
Activity had picked up in recent days, including a pair of smaller eruptions at the weekend.
There were no reports of injuries or deaths, but authorities warned of possible lava flows.

"People living nearby are advised to be on alert for the potential appearance of lava," Indonesia's Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Centre said in a statement.

Well, if you really like the place, then stay where you are, because we never know any place is safe than other.
I think only place we should avoid to stay is, 19 degrees north and south on Earth’s location.

Q: (T) Hoagland is not talking about... whatever he's talking about, as far as the mathematics go, of the tetrahedral triangles within the sphere, which I'm assuming this planet is calling the sacred geometries, but are physics-type things of different densities, which may not actually be right. OK, this doesn't apply just to Mars, this is, every sphere has these same properties...?

A: Yes.

Q: (T)... a golfball, a base ball; I know they're not perfect spheres, they have dimples; all the way up to the sun, and so forth and so on, of any size, made out of any material, as long as it's a sphere, it will have the same properties.

A: No.

Q: (T) OK, it has to have certain kinds of materials?

A: No, must be magnetized.

Q: (T) OK, it's a magnetized sphere; something that has a magnetic field around it. (L) Is the tetrahedral configuration a property of the magnetism?

A: Yes. No.

Q: (T) Yes to my question, no to Laura's question?

A: Yes.

Q: (T) OK, my question is, the sphere has to be able to generate a magnetic field, like the earth has a magnetic field, like Mars generates a magnetic field...

A: Or be magnetized by installation of internal magnetic generator.

Q: (L) OK, what's the purpose of this? What's the purpose of these tetrahedrons? What are the...

A: Purpose is not proper term.

Q: (T) That's right. It's not a purpose, it just exists this way. These spheres that are magnetic, or are able to be magnetized, this happens just because they are what they are, and this is how the physics works?

A: Reflection of universal balance.

Q: (L) OK, they just simply... and is it that something occurs at the points of these triangles that is noticeable, I mean, is it like a power point?

A: No.

Q: (L) OK, well, this guy Jim [who is in communication with Ark] says that they are designated by different monuments on the planet's surface...

A: Nonsense!!!

Q: (T) Thank you! (L)... and that they are visual sighting...

A: Artificial constructed tetrahedrons are placed on strategic locations on the planet's surface in order to utilize magnetic fields properly.

Q: (L) Who places these artificially constructed tetrahedrons at these points?

A: The artificial constructors.

Q: (L) And who are they?

A: Whomever they may be.

Q: (T) In other words, they can be anybody. They're artificial constructor, they could be anybody... (L) If people know about them, they can do this...

A: No, no, no. Nineteen degrees north and south.

Q: (T) Correct, those are the numbers that Hoagland came up with, with his stuff. On most of the planets, and our sun, we seem to have major events happening, or have happened...

A: Hawaii.

Q: (T) Yes, Hawaii, Puerto Rico... let's see, 19 degrees north and south, Philippines, I think, is somewhere close, on the south side. Major volcanos... (F) Philippines is on the north side, that's not in the Southern Hemisphere... (T) I'd have to pull out a global map to see what the 19 degrees are. On Mars, Cydonia resides at approximately 19 degrees, the Giant volcano, the dead volcano on Mars is approximately 19 degrees, the stuff that they found on Venus, the major things, are at approximately 19 degrees. The sunspots are approximately 19 degrees, the red spot on Jupiter... (L) Is there anything else we want to get on this tetrahedron... Is there anything else we could ask about this subject, that we haven't thought of ourselves...
