There is rumbling from towards the two volcanoes to the north. Not sure it is thunder or the other volcanoes talking. Big lightning storm

The erruption for the moment seems to be dieing down. I can now see stars directly over where the plum was a little while age. I Just bought a killer pair of binoculars last week, and they just paid for themselves.

Very impressive eruption. Similar to Chaiten. My friend in Bariloche is still dealing with the ash from Cordon-Caulle and is not pleased.

I´m all the way up here in Valdivia...walking home from work, looking southeast, I thought to myself, that´s the prettiest damn cloud I´ve ever seen in my life. Speaking of castillos en el aire. I was even wondering if it could have been Osorno. I´m a bit amazed that I was able to see it from here. I´m no volcanologist, but when Villarica erupted I couldn´t see a thing, and that´s roughly twice as close as Calbuco. Can anybody explain that?

Hey btw this man´s got the right idea with the worth of a good pair of binoculars - key word good, or killer is even better. As someone whose adolescence roughly coincided with a nerdy obsession with field ornithology, can confirm. Leave the camera for later, nobody cares, get a point and shoot or just a smart phone with a decent camera and go for the bins. You can even take pictures through them. I´ve had a pair of Swarovskis since I was 13. One of the only possessions I still from when I was that age - there´s a reason for that!

It is a much bigger plume of ash and smoke than Villarica.

Unconfirmed reports that flights suspended into Bariloche.

My friend in Bariloche has confirmed that they have closed the airport there. She says they feel better prepared, and the authorities more on the ball, than the Cordon-Caulle eruption.
