Kamchatka volcano eruption

Stunning interactive view of the December, 2012 eruption of Plosty Tolbachik on the Kamchatka Peninsula, bordering the Pacific Ocean in the far east of Russia. The camera crew that specializes in 360-degree photos cancelled plans to be elsewhere and got there just in time to catch the beginning of the eruption.

The second image is interactive. It a 360-degree photo that you can pan left and right. Zoom etc. For most people it's just as well to let it automatically pan to the right. If you use its tools to navigate the area on your own and get lost you can start over by reloading the page.

The photo is by Note the vertical splatter of the highest lava! Click to enlarge.
