On 14 July, the Showa crater was mainly producing near-constant ash emissions, which were very noisy - roaring jet-engine-like sounds swelling and decreasing. On the other observation days, no sounds could be heard, though. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

image found in: Sakurajima volcano, Japan: vulcanian explosions in July 2013 (photos)
Some of the eruptions are from giant gas bubbles that explode at the top of the magma column inside the vent, sending huge liquid bombs in all directions. Shock waves can be seen exiting the crater. Seconds later, a loud detonation is heard that echoes several times in the Valle del Bove. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
