Colima Volcano - Daytime and Nighttime eruptions, overflight of crater

Photovolcanica | Feb 11, 2015

Colima volcano can be considered one of the potentially most devastating volcanoes on earth. Repeatedly, within about 5000 year cycles, the volcano has built a new edifice and then collapsed again, devastating large swathes of surrounding landscape. Today around 400000 people live in the areas that may be affected.

The volcano is presently in a state of heightened activity, marked by frequent small to moderate explosive events.

The video includes timelapse animations from nighttime eruptions, spectacular still images, daytime eruptions and video from a volcano monitoring flight.
