Sakurajima volcano explodes into life as it sprays burning hot ash high into the air – followed by a deafening shockwave and lightning . Watch the video…
Shot by filmmaker Marc Szeglat, 47, this incredible footage shows the highly active Sakurajima volcano at the Japanese island of Kyushu.
The German videographer was able to capture the rare phenomenon of volcanic lightning, as well as an explosive shockwave which rippled through the sky. Sakurajima, translated as Cherry Island, has been erupting on a regular basis since 1955 and is a constant danger to the nearby city of Kagoshima, which has a population of over 600,000.
