QUOTH THE WIKI: Stromboli It is one of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic arc north of Sicily. Its name is derived from the Ancient Greek after the volcano's round, conical appearance when seen from a distance. The island's population is about 500 as of 2016. The volcano has erupted many times and is constantly active with minor eruptions, often visible from many points on the island and from the surrounding sea, giving rise to the island's nickname "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean".

Below, boaters on Wednesday learned the meaning of "constantly active."
