An Absolutely Massive Volcano Is Exploding In Chile Right Now

Calbuco, a stratovolcano in southern Chile, began erupting yesterday at 7pm local time. First spewing massive ash clouds then, at 10pm, erupting explosively as its fragile structure collapsed inwards. Here’s all the stunning imagery and video; we’ll keep it updated as this develops. You can see it from space!

Spectacular photo of airplane flying by volcano's molten lava eruption

I don't know if I would be happy to fly so close of an active volcano that is ejecting lava like in this photo featured on National Geographic's Your Shot. I know the plane is not flying over the lava, but you never know when Earth is going to get mad. For photographer Baldur Sveinsson, however, it's business as usual.
