More eruptions, more lava, more ash clouds!
The story is actually pretty harrowing as the filmers weren’t exactly volcanologists and set up a little too close for comfort,
“The crew sprang into action, and in two minutes we were making our way out of the harbor. By this point, sizable chunks of pumice and other debris were bombarding us as we coiled the lines and tried to find a path ahead of us.
I ducked down to the chart table to turn on our navigation software, and suddenly heard from above several great cries in unison. I came back up immediately and was greeted with one of the most extraordinary spectacles I have ever seen. The mountain — far from issuing a benign puff of ash — was spewing out a fountain of lava, flinging enormous molten rock fragments miles into the sky. The sound was deafening, and preceding every rumble, the shock waves that were sent out reverberated through your chest. At this point we were beside ourselves with elation, and fumbled through the drawers for a zip-lock bag containing the camera.”
Once in a lifetime opportunity for these guys. Unbelievable.
