Audio is a must for this one!

Mount Tavurvur in Papua New Guinea erupts, sending volcanic ash nearly 60,000 feet above sea level and a shockwave that took nearly 12 seconds to reach the videographer on his boat.

Luckily there were no casualties as a result of the eruption, which occurred on August 29th 2014.

Its interesting to note, that the “smoke” you see in the video is not smoke at all, which would imply that something is burning (have you ever seen stone burn?)

What is actually ejected during the eruption is volcanic ash, comprised of tiny shattered fragments of lava and rock propelled by volcanic gases – its basically a large cloud of super heated glass shards.

In 2010, an Icelandic volcano erupted and intermittently suspended air traffic across Europe for a month. The issue being the large ash cloud and the potential damage to any airplane that might fly close enough to the plume to “inhale” the stone fragments into the engine.
