Copied from my message in this topic (,250.0.html):

I see there's now an animation on Spaceeather homepage, which indicates the movement of the volcanic ash in stratosphere, but ... only for August! According to their info, a an ash plume of ~5DU moved across Ukraine on Aug.20-21. I haven't noticed anything on that days (because I wasn't informed of it).

But there was something special on Sep.03. The sunset was not orange-yellow or orange-pink as usual, it was pink-violet in colours. Not very spectacular, but the violet colour was evident, and I was almost sure that was a volcanic sunset.  Pity, I hadn't my camera with me.
