Eruption continues on Bristol Island

The satellite image from 10th May 2016 shows a hazy but cloudy sky although Bristol Island is barely visible in the image. Incandescence is still present at the Sourabaya Volcano area as well as a plume which is drifting NE, this indicates that the eruption continues. If you look closely at the area of incandescence you will find that it seems to be faintly elongated which indicates that a lava flow may be occurring. If it is not lava then it may simply be a reflection of the incandescence on the clouds. We can only truly know once we see a cloud free image of the island in the near future.
