The 11,000-foot Mount Etna last erupted on December 3, 2015.

Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy continues erupting on Wednesday with fountains of lava. The panel of experts who keep an eye on these volcanoes have deemed this latest eruption as not being risky, but are monitoring the situation closely.

Coming to life again on Monday evening, with bright orange lava spewing from its 3,330m-high peak, it's light display is the most stunning it has ever been.

Etna's last major eruption was in 1992 when two streams of lava threatened the village of Zafferana.

Bogdanovic is one of two players the Nets are believed to be moving, the other of which is Brook Lopez. Splitter is playing just 16 minutes per game, scoring six points and pulling down three rebounds.

Volcanologists said Tuesday's eruptions were not considered unsafe. This time, however, authorities report no danger to the towns that dot the mountain's slopes.

Mount Etna: it's all down to you.

Though volcanic ash can cause flight disruptions and other dangers, air traffic was reportedly normal at Sicily's Catania airport on Tuesday. Scientists are tracking the activities of the volcano and the ash cloud. The volcano's first recorded observation was in 425 B.C.
