Watch Supercharged Volcanic Ash Cloud

In Americas, News Headlines, Videos, Volcanoes

A supercharged ash cloud has sparked stunning lightning strikes at an erupting Chilean volcano.

The video, from the BBC’s Patagonia series, was posted to the British broadcaster’s Facebook page overnight and captured by Chilean filmmaker Christian Muñoz-Donoso during an eruption at the Calbuco volcano.

Also known as a “dirty thunderstorm”, lightning can occasionally be sparked during eruptions when dry ash particles are stripped of their electrons by the force of an eruption.
