Etna has returned to apparent calm, but it is probably only a matter of days before new activity appears, likely at either Bocca Nuova or the New SE crater. Diffuse ash emissions seem to be occurring from the latter (see image).
The eruption last night from Bocca Nuova was the 7th eruptive episode of this kind in the summit area during the past 3 weeks. 5 of them occurred at the Bocca Nuova, whereas the other 2 came from the New Southeast Crater (INGV Catania).

The activity has abruptly dropped. This "mini-paroxysm" seems to be coming to an end already.
Update Wed 30 Jan 20:25
Activity is getting stronger by the minute and more and more resembles one of the SE crater paroxysms, only that it is from Bocca Nuova. It will be interesting to read Boris'report tomorrow.

Weak glow is visible from Bocca Nuova, indicating that probably small strombolian eruptions have resumed at the eastern vent.

Weak strombolian activity took place last night at the New SE crater, accompanied by slightly increased tremor.
At the moment, dilute ash/gas venting is sometimes visible from the crater, but tremor has dropped.
