Did a search and nothing came up about this.

The volcano in Mexico City Popocatepetl "Popo" has gone off again. This time quite big one by all accounts.

See the video and watch as the whole mountain shakes, and clouds are blown away by the force. Marvel at the side vents of steam.

According to the Mexican Media, the authorities are taking the risk of ash fall very seriously, but I am yet to see anything about whether this is just a pressure release, or a prelude to something bigger, or possible evacuations.

Either way it DAMN impressive

If I lived by a volcano that did that--I'd be so far from that thing I wouldnt want to see any portion of it.

That 'burp' doesn't look like a volcano settling down, but warming up. Gorgeous! Glad I live so far away.

Seeing the shock wave travel through the clouds was reall cool!

Thanks for posting, S & F!

Peace

Awesome vid, but it has been sped up, just look at the timer on the original u-tube link

I would have thought that the fact that this vid was sped up was quite obvious.

This is just an assumption of course, but I think it's probably safe to say that YOU would never ever live by a Volcano.

Regarding those who actually do live nearby, I'm sure it takes much more to scare them away.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be running right by your side(that is if you could keep up). I just think that if I actually lived there, I would probably think differently.

This was super cool. I like the way the clouds
shrink when the shockwave hits.

I wish NASA would slow video of the Suns CME's down a bit..
They look like Fire Crackers at the speed they release.

It would look boringly slow. Solar events take hours to develop, sometimes days. To hold our interest they speed it up. Like the volcano video.

It "looks" better.

Yeah i agree.
even a volcano from our perspective
erupts slowly.

Maybe if NASA just halved the speed they
are doing CME's at now. 1 sec to like 3 sec?
Whats the rush ?

I hear you. The problem with that is the enormous scales involved. Say a CME moves out at 1 million miles per hour. Thats fast for a CME.

It would take an hour for it to traverse the diameter of the disk of the sun. So when you watch it in real time, it looks like nothing is happening at all. There are videos of that somewhere. You could get a telescope with a day filter and see for yourself. The sun is awesome to watch in any speed.

As far as volcanoes go, they are a lot quicker. The one up top is only sped up a little bit. There is real time footage of others.

That's not a volcano. That's a spicy meatball.

That raised a chuckle from my aged and blackened lungs. Not unlike our friend Popo there.

That volcano is amazing. 50 miles and it still towers above the Mexico City skyline. I thought the Rockies were tall.

It's almost a mile taller than the mountains I have seen out west.

Also bear in mind that the normal altitude of Mexico city is 8000 ft!!! that IS one big mountain for sure.

OK I just looked it up, it's 5465m elevation making it roughly 16300 ft

I did live in Portland OR when St. Helen's burped respectably. Caused lots of car accidents as drivers (like me) kept looking. This was nothing but a long column reaching up and up and up.

Motha Nature at her most awesome.
