Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, erupted overnight sending jets of molten lava into the air but not threatening nearby residents.
The white-hot lava jets were thrown over 600 feet above Etna while a spout on the southeast flank of the volcano released two streams of lava in the direction of an uninhabited area.
There was a similar eruption on March 29 while last December the nearby airport of Catania had to be closed at night for two weeks because of ash blown into the atmosphere by volcanic activity.
Etna's last major eruption was in summer 2001.
