Standing tall between the cities of Puerto Varas and Puerto Montt, Chile, is the Calbuco Volcano. Calbuco hasn’t erupted in over forty years. That is, until April 22, 2015, when it showed up with an eruption so spectacular it will truly blow your mind. Luckily, there were people nearby to film it. The people that captured this video spent the days leading up to the eruption near another volcano shooting time lapses. Just when they were about to change locations, something amazing happened. Here’s what they had to say about it on their YouTube page: > “After an amazing night under the night sky we took the cable car downwards after a delay caused by repairs. Already late we headed south to catch the ferry on Routa 7 down to Patagonia. After 10 minutes on the ferry we noticed a massive, almost nuclear looking cloud boiling upwards just were we left a few hours ago. Frenetically looking for a good outlook we then rushed to the only non-forested place to get a decent view of the show.” We’re glad they did, because this footage is like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
