The Sakurajima volcano in southern Japan has erupted in spectacular fashion.
The volcano, which has has erupted more than 600 times this year, burst into life again Tuesday night, sending a massive shower of molten rock and ash into the sky.
The blast was caught on camera.
The latest explosion follows a blast in July which showered ash on the streets of Kagoshima, which lies just 2km across a bay from the volcano.
Currently, the volcano warning there is at level three out of a possible five levels.
A level five would mean that the residents living near the crater would have to be evacuated, while level three warns people not to approach the volcano.
