5:00 AM Sept 12th NZ volcams. This picture was taken from Web site.
White Island faces West toward the sunset, so is also facing away from the Sun and along the Eclitpic at dawn. This is certainly not the Moon blazing away with a red Dust Cloud at 5:00 AM, nor is it Mars. Likewise, the Occulting Sun at sunset can be seen in the elongated Sun that is setting.
