Strombolian activity with sporadic ash emissions continues intermittently at Mount Etna's 'saddle crater' since around July 10, 2020.

The image below shows strombolian activity at the newest crater, referred to as the 'cono della sella' (saddle cone). The crater emerged during early 2017 in the area between Southeast Crater (SEC) and New Southeast Crater (NSEC).

At the same time, there is also a strombolian activity within the Northeast Crater, and there are sporadic ash emissions from the Voragine Crater.

A quick look through the eyes of ESA's Sentinel-2 satellite reveals a prominent thermal anomaly over the volcano today:
