Spectacular Video of Etna’s Recent Eruptions

The last few weeks have seen a number of eruptions from Italy’s Mount Etna volcano. The most recent eruptions occurred last weekend and were videoed by Dr. Boris Behncke.

At 3329m Etna is one of the largest active volcanoes in Europe and is constantly monitored for activity. Due its close proximity to dense populations and history of large destructive eruptions it has been identified as one of 16 decade volcanoes in the world.

This video captures not only the sights of a strombolian eruption but also the deep booming sounds. So be sure to watch this with the volume up!
