A massive series of eruptions occurred on South Mainland Japan at Sakurajima Volcano throughout the day yesterday (May 21 2015).
This video is 2 1/2 straight hours of large blasts. Not just regular small eruptions, these large blasts sent mushroom clouds of debris miles away to the nearest major city. Very impressive activity to see.
Beginning in the early morning hours just before sunrise (4AM Japan time), and extending to the early afternoon hours of the day (May 21 2015), these large volcanic blasts sent ash over the metropolitan area of Kagoshima.
This volcano has been a past gauge for the activity in the West Pacific, on the same day as this eruption (May 21) we have received video of a new eruption from Mount Lokon in Indonesia (due south of Japan).
