SnowBrains |

This epic video, taken during a Volcano-Discovery expedition to Krakatau volcano, Indonesia from 13-20 Oct 2018, demonstrates the unbelievable power of mother nature.

In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred as a lateral blast that excavated a pit crater beneath the southern lid of the crater, at the same location the September lava flow had overspilled from the crater. By 19 Oct, this new pit had merged with the main crater, enlarging it.
