Batu Tara Volcano

Here is a lovely video of selected eruptions at Batu Tara in Indonesia. It’s from Photovolcanica. Their Web site also has a lot of information and images. It’s an ideal source for anyone interested in volcanoes…and penguins, oddly enough.

And here is a NASA image of the volcano – note that this is just the tip of the edifice, which rises some almost 2 miles (3 km) above the sea floor. Yeah, it’s big!
