Description

Sakurajima volcano lies close to the city of Kagoshima in southern Japan. Since 1955, several prolonged phases of explosive activity from the Showa crater have been observed. The video shows a typical explosive eruption associated with a small pyroclastic flow. First, a detailed video is shown where the ejection of a dense jet of material triggering the flow can be seen. The wider angle view shows the same eruption filmed with a second camera to give a better overview. The video is copyrighted material. Please do not reupload copies of the video to youtube or other video platforms. You can watch the original video for free as often as you like on youtube or download for personal viewing.
