Seeing this is a volcano I figure I'd file this under fragile Earth.

This is a phenomenal phenomenon to watch. Not sure how this is created. I mean, what causes the hole in a puff of smoke in the first place and what keeps it ascending in a ring formation without breaking up?

So many questions. So little time on Earth.

Wow,

I used to live in NZ. I could see the volcano in the distance. Would have been cool to see that.

It's probably caused the same way you or I might blow a smoke ring- short, strong burst of smoke through a small opening...the mountain belched!

Was it active when you lived there? I had the impression (although I don't know why) that this volcano is newly active.
Correct me if I'm wrong please.

Thanks

Most things that are good are bad.
It's the duality/polarity upon which we live (or so I've convinced myself anyway)

Yup. That's what it is alright. I THINK we all agree there's no conspiracy here Phage

Yeah I suppose. But when we do it, it's mechanical and deliberate. I mean, I am not arguing that this isn't accomplished in nature because obviously, it is. I just think it's awesomely rare.

Gave you a star my friend, and a flag, obviously natural as you say, but still a very impressive thing to see

This makes me wonder if it happens a lot more often than we realize.......seeing we only get to see it when someone has a camera on hand. Hmmmmmm.

Cool, smoke rings.
I wonder if it can spit out a sailing ship like Gandolf did at Bilbos birthday party in The Lord of The Rings. !

Speaking of rainbows. I usually see them in the east when the sun is getting low on the western horizon during a sun shower. On Sunday here in coastal Virginia it was partly cloudy, with whispy white clouds covering a good portion of the sky. At 3:00 or so looking west I saw a rainbow smudge on a cloud. Not a rainbow, no bow, no rain, just a smudge of a prism spread out over a cloud. I have never seen that before and in truth thought that you could only see a rainbow looking east. Not fantastic but it was interesting. Anyone else ever see something like this?

That's really made me want a ciggarette. Haha.

But seriously thanks for finding this. I've always wanted to see a volcanic smoke ring. Tick, that's one less thing.

When I was there, over a few years ago it was very quiet, but I think it has been active for a while not sure.

It has erupted sometime in the past 15 years before though. Ash reached to where I lived.

Where is the evidence that it is Mt. Ruapehu?

either its very old ( last eruption was in 1996]

or its fake (some other volcano)
