We can never get enough of the truly awesome spectacle of nature's destruction.

That's where this new video showing some lightning rattling the sky in one of Patagonia's beautiful volcanoes.

Early this year we were treated to a another dramatic showing when the Calbuco volcano spewed an ocean of ash and smoke into the atmosphere.



Nature is so cool.

A few unlucky hikers were caught in one hell of a big surprise as the volcanon on which they were traveled erupted suddenly, Sept. 14.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported from enormous burst of black smoke and ash that rose up to 1.2 miles in the air.

According to The Guardian:

The 1,592-metre (5,222ft) high Mount Aso is one of the most active peaks in Japan but also a popular hiking spot. There were a handful of people at a parking lot near the peak but they were being evacuated safely, officials said on Monday. They said the eruption had come without warning.

The Guardian was also kind enough to provide a handy map so you know where this happened:

So this is what the Apocalypse looks like.

Chile’s Calbuco volcano erupted multiple times Wednesday night for the first time in over 40 years, turning the sky into a scene straight out of Hell.

The eruption was captured in some pretty amazing video footage and photos. Watch the clip above as ash pours out into the red sky while lightning flashes in the background.

4,000 people have been evacuated from the area, including 1,500 residents from the town of Ensenada, after Chile’s National Service of Geology and Mining (Sernaageomin) issued a “Red Alert.”

“There was a lot of panic, lots of chaos, traffic jams, people going to supermarkets, everyone looking for water, trying to take out money from the ATMs,” said one witness according to CNN.

The volcano last erupted in 1972, according to the Associated Press, and another volcano, Villarrica,erupted back in March.

So far there have been no injuries or deaths reported, said Interior Minister Rodrigo Peñailillo, but some flights have been cancelled.
