Italian volcano, Mount Etna, is blowing smoke rings in the sky!

Post by Ann » Sun Apr 07, 2024 6:22 am

Mount Etna in Italy is the most active volcano in Europe. Since April 3, 2024, it has been blowing smoke rings in the air!

Click to play embedded YouTube video.

The reason seems to be that there is a new vent on Mount Etna that is almost perfectly circular in shape. As gas is being released from this new vent, it forms smoke rings.

Kind of cool, I say! :D 8-)
