Chaiten volcano lightning storm

Volcanoes are most impressing natural disasters for me. The amount of released energy is impressive (even if it is not the biggest) and the visual display is nothing short of breathtaking and frightening in the same time.

A very good example is the photo below. This is from Chaiten volcano in Chile.


This one of the best pictures that I have seen showing lighting generated by an eruption.



Full article about this eruption is available on Universe Today.
