While it is not only night over Papuan New Guinea is now likely to rupture a large area around the volcano in the dark caused by the ashes of the eruption.

It is unclear whether the activity at the volcano is still going on, has lessened, or has ended. However, the ash cloud was divided into two large parts by blowing winds in different directions at different altitudes:

– The highest part at 20 km (63,000 ft., Altitude 630) is swiftly eastbound and is already more than 500 km from the volcano.

– The "lower" part of the cloud, up to 17 km (55,000 feet, altitude 550), instead spreads and drifts more slowly south.

The aviation color code is red, and all aircraft should avoid the affected areas at great distances (see the latest Ash Cloud Forecast of the VAAC Darwin attached).
