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.
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.
