I just thought the shockwave was pretty spectacular and thought you would think it interesting also. Enjoy. Sorry if it's already posted. I didn't see it.



Mount Tavurvur, a volcano in Papua New Guinea, erupted on Aug. 29, spewing ash and causing a shock wave and resultant sonic boom.
While in a boat near the New Guinea coast, Phil McNamara caught a rare sight, the initial explosion of a volcano. Mount Tavurvur is known as a rather active volcano, one that caused many deaths and covered a nearby town in ash in 1994.
Although a smaller eruption in comparison, the recent August explosion captured on video is a rare, close-up look.

"That was something", says the guy in the video. Seems like a understatement. That was very cool, sounded like monsoon thunder, which is very loud and sounds like it's happening in your head. I probably would have poo in my pants and been trying to skedaddle rather than filming that eruption.

I'm a bit surprised they didn't get knocked over. There's a video of a explosion that happened around here back in the late '80's where a guy had a camera set up on the freeway a mile or two away(unsure why the dude was doing that but he was) and he and the camera got knocked on their asses.

Man, watching that wave, that I don't think I've seen anything like it before. Nature is amazing.

Yeah, no doubt; that was hilarious. It was more like "Holy shhhhhhiiii-moking toledos!" What restraint!

That shockwave was amazing looking.

Watch it in full screen and you can see some BIG chunks of rock hitting the water near the cargo ship.

I would have been more worried about a pyroplastic flow.
aren't they meant to travel much faster and farther over water?

or maybe I'm just paranoid with too much imagination - but I would have had a panic about that!

All the energy is directed up because of the shape of the volcano, the sides of the volcano opening takes the blast tunneling it upwards in a cone shape.
Shockwave and sound waves behave differently.
