Chile’s Calbuco Volcano erupted last April for the first time in four decades and prompted the government to evacuate nearby residents.  The active volcano is situated near Puerto Varas and Puerto Montt in southern Chile.

Filmmakers Jonas Dengler and Martin Heck of Timestorm Films, happened to be near the area and were able to document the explosion.  They captured the huge ash clouds spewing in the sky.  The thick plumes that covered the sky as it turned into red was all recorded.

In the video description, the filmmakers spent a few days shooting a neighboring volcano, Osorno. They were on a ferry when they noticed a massive, almost nuclear-looking cloud spewing upwards just near were they left a few hours ago.  They rushed to the only non-forested place in the area to get a great view of the ashes that formed into a giant mushroom-shaped cloud.

“This was for sure the most incredible show I've ever seen.  I think this is a one in a lifetime event and I am so happy that we were able to capture it in all its glory” says the video owner.
