Volcanic eruption. A stream of lava bombs fly from a volcano at night. Lava bombs (or volcanic bombs) are blobs of molten rock that are ejected by the volcano into the air. They may reach a few hundred metres altitude before falling to Earth, cooling as they do so. The volcano seen here is Yasour, a stratovolcano in the New Hebrides Islands. It was discovered in 1774, and has been in almost constant mild eruption.
