The ‘Puyehue’ Volcano

Incredible photographs. There have been many other volcanic eruptions over the ages, but views like
this are totally new to me and most of us as well.

On some pictures it looks like the arrival of the mother ship in the UFO movie thriller "Encounters
of the third kind."

However it is also a demonstration of the power that drives the universe and how small we the
humanoid species are in the overall scheme of things. Yet it is we who can reason, understand
and appreciate. This is truly spectacular and something to be beholden and revered as
divine nature itself.

on June 5, 2011. Puyehue volcano erupted for the first time in half a century on June 4, 2011, prompting evacuations for 3,500 people as it sent a cloud of ash that reached Argentina . The National Service of
Geology and Mining said the explosion that sparked the eruption also produced a column of gas 10
kilometers (six miles) high, hours after warning of strong seismic activity in the area. AFP PHOTO/

erupted in south-central Chile on Saturday, belching ash over 6 miles (10 km) into the sky, as

several thousand residents, authorities said. REUTERS/Ivan Alvarado
