Fire and lightning erupt from a volcano

Jul 30, 2016 By Archit Tripathi

Earlier this week, the Showa crater of Mount Sakurajima in Kagoshima, Japan erupted in a spectacular show of fire and smoke. The smoke reached a height of nearly 20,000 feet, which is one of the tallest smokestacks on record for the mountain. While smoke and fire are hardly new for a volcanic eruption, this particular eruption was noteworthy for another phenomenon, which can be clearly seen in the video.
