In both an eerie and beautiful sight to behold, Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupted on Monday, spewing a massive column of ash and smoke up to 5,000 meters into the sky. The volcano sent a thick layer of smoke into the air engulfing the sky and darkening the view on Sumatra island.
The volcano on the island has been rumbling since 2010 and saw a deadly eruption in 2016.

As of now, there have been no reports of injuries or deaths but authorities warned of possible lava flows and more eruptions.
“This is an alert for all of us to avoid red-zone areas near Sinabung,” said Armen Putera, a local official with Indonesia’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Centre.
As the eruption unfolded, people took on social media to share pictures and videos of the same. And as we told you, they look both eerie and beautiful at the same time. And if you thinking what kind of person romanticise a volcano? Then you might want to be locked at the home for five months to understand.
