Shortly before 4AM on Friday 29 August, Rabaul's Tavurvur volcano bursts into life blasting out gas, ash, dust, and white hot lava. The mighty roar of the eruption has people running out of their houses in alarm 20 kilometers away. Ash is hurled as high as 10,000-20,000 meters. Lava flows and is hurled into the air solidifing into rocks even as it falls into the sea and onto the land around the crater. Photo: Cedric Choi. 019
