AVO Redoubt Hut webcam, 23 March 2009 20-01-23

Redoubt-watchers will be aware that the Alaska Volcano Observatory’s Hut webcam went offline during the eruption yesterday, but came back again towards the end of the afternoon. As a result images were captured of the eruptive activity – the sixth explosive event – that took place from 19:41 local time onwards yesterday.

From these webcam images Akira Shirakawa has compiled a video, with synchronized sound, that shows activity between 19:19 and 20:43, available at YouTube. Large-scale ash emission makes everything very dark around 19:50 (at video time 0:24), and a big ash eruption can be clearly seen at 20:01 (video time 0:34).

There is also a page of Hut webcam images and a time-lapse movie here (h/t Chris Rowan, via comment at Eruptions).

A generous reader of The Volcanism Blog has also submitted these video captures (available at this Flickr page) from the webcam, taken between 19:50 and 20:43 on 23 March. The image from 20:01 is at the top of this post, to see all eight images in sequence click on ‘more’.
