Krakatoa volcano (Indonesia): violent eruption, ash to 47,000 ft altitude



A large magmatic eruption is taking place at the volcano right now. Based on satellite imagery, VAAC Darwin spotted a high-level ash and SO2 plume reaching 47,000 ft (15 km) altitude moving WNW.

A strong thermal hot spot is detected as well. Both the webcam on Anak Krakatau Island and from the coast (in 40 km distance) show strong lava fountaining from the volcano.

9. In 1951, Robert A Heinlein wrote a story called "The Year of the Jackpot"...

...in which all the curves and rhythms and patterns of world and human affairs came together to produce apocalypse. It ended, as I recall, with the sun going nova...

3. Wow, this is really scary...

From the link:

This seems to be the strongest eruptive phase since the violent phreatomagmatic activity following the partial collapse of the volcano on 22 Dec 2018, which had triggered a deadly tsunami that killed hundreds of people on Java's west coast.

13. If Tambora goes active, then get scared.

The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora resulted in 1816 being called the “Year without a Summer.”

It was really more of an explosion, than an eruption.
