Popocatepetl volcano (Mexico): strong explosion last evening
The vulcanian-type eruption ejected a shower of incandescent lava bombs onto the upper slopes of the volcano and generated an ash plume that rose a few kilometers.
Time-lapse of the eruption:
The activity of the volcano has not changed significantly during the past months. Intermittent small to sometimes large explosions and strong gas / steam emissions accompany the slow lava effusion in the summit crater in the form of a small flat cake-like lava dome. With each of these larger explosions, a part or all of the dome is destroyed and a new cycle begins.
