Sakurajima Volcano, Japan: Several Impressive Eruptions, Static Lightning Discharge, Lava Covers Entire Mountainside (Video, Dec. 22, 2011)

YouTube Added: 22.12.2011


You will see 5 of the 10 eruptions which occurred today at Sakurajima. If you were to watch the videos in extreme fast forward, the volcano would appear like a steam engine — literally giving off eruptions all day long at regular intervals.

In this video, you will see static discharge lightning, lava bomb/missiles/projectiles, and the entire mountainside covered in lava.

The volcano webcams were not uploading for at least a week, it is good to see the site back up and running !

many thanks to the Japanese scientists who monitor this volcano .
