We saw Stromboli twice from the ocean during a Cruise. On the way South, we saw it with a mild glow and some steam vents around 5PM. On the way back North, we were lucky to pass by at sunset. The Captain of the Eurodam slowed down so we could get the full effect. Just after sunset, while there was still an orange glow to the twilight sky, we were thrilled to see an eruption, with a bright orange lava ball and fountain come up over the southern rim. We could then see the steam/smoke go down the side of the volcano to the water.
