This incredible video shows a cameraman being nearly blown off the edge of erupting Mt Yasur volcano on Tanna Island, Vanuatu on July 16, 2017.
The impressive footage shows Geoff Mackley setting up a camera on the edge of the volcanic crater when it suddenly blows.
The noise of the volcano is kind of terrifying!
The filmmaker explains: “My friend Geoff was setting up a GoPro camera at the crater’s edge. The volcano suddenly had a huge explosion, sending lava bombs flying hundreds of feet through the air. First you can see the shock wave in the volcanic gas. Less than a second later, the shock wave and boom reach my position, shaking the camera. Then the lava bombs come firing out of the volcano at high speed.”
Have you ever experienced such a close volcanic eruption?
