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.
