Video of a volcanic eruption

Holy smokin’ toledos!  Check out this video (turn on your sound) of a volcanic eruption in Papau New Guinea.  The first thing you will notice is the explosive eruption. The next thing is the shockwave passing through the clouds and atmosphere.  Go back and watch that again.  How cool, but the 2nd time, you’ll also notice rocks and other debris shooting upward into the atmosphere and if you watch carefully, you’ll see them fall into the ocean and make a big splash!  Holy smokin’ toledos is right!
