Last week, Mount Etna in Italy erupted — and was caught on tape by Klaus Dorschfeldt, a videographer from Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

Mount Etna, an active volcano on the coast of Sicily, has been having a pretty volatile year. The most recent eruption was just last week, overnight from 5-6 March.

It was a big one. It sent jets of lava high into the air, with heavy ash falling over the landscape in the aftermath. It would have been quite a thing to see.

Luckily, Klaus Dorschfeldt was on hand. In the wee hours of 6 March, he managed to capture the spectacular event on film. It's not the first such; Dorschfeldt has been filming Mt Etna for some time now, and his YouTube channel is a goldmine of volcanic eruptions and time lapses.

No one was harmed in last week's eruption, nor was air traffic disrupted.
