Chaiten volcano: Take a look at these pics! by Ellerd on 8 May 2008 2:10pm
 
The top one is amazing! And pretty creepy too - like a scene from the movie Independence Day...

Fantasic images. The first photo is incredible. And to think that the volcano has been dormant for thousands of years. My mind is boggling away! ; ).

Holy Crap! I didn't know that happened in an eruption. Fantastic.

We had a docudrama on Channel 4 about Krakatau and it was scary to be informed at the end of it that Ana Krakatau is rebuilding so that some day it may blow its top again as it did in 1863.

1883, Ken ;-)

What's even scarier is the eruption of a volcano some 1400km east of Krakatoa. The 1815 eruption of Mt Tambora was the largest explosion of modern times, ejecting so much material into the atmosphere that the following year was dubbed "The Year without a summer". Scary!
