I spent three hours on the crater's edge and I had the place to myself. In the night, the volcano felt incredibly close and huge, as the lava lit up the steam rising from the crater floor. As day came, the glow faded into the light, and after the sun rose, the volcano seemed much tamer. I'd got used to the violence of the large explosions and stopped wondering if I should panic and run when they happened.
