Nice pics.

Volcano now appears to be growing the bung back after it blew off at the end of last year. Also features in pics, dome avalanche incandescent rockfalls and pyro flows from dome collapse events down the radial valleys.

Looks very nice, resembles Merapi. Currently missing charred locals in the photos, so the Merapi act alike is not quite complete.
Sinabung may provide these extras a mite later when a big chunk of the dome drops off.

Rock type appears to be Andesite but not yet confirmed by reportage on samples.

Have a nice day: Ag
