Yesterday, the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile erupted for the first time in over 42 years, sending an enormous ash cloud 7 miles into the air and forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes in a 12 mile radius. A man named Rodrigo Barrera was on the scene with his camera, and he managed to capture the above time-lapse video showing both the beauty and terror of the eruption.
