Fissure Eruption 2012 at Tolbachik

Link collection of the best photos and videos showing the fissure eruption 2012 at southern flank of Tolbachik volcano on Kamchatka peninsula in Russia.

Jesus, I could kick myself… I would have loved to capture such impressive images of volcanic Kamchatka. To boot geologically seen the distance of two months means only the split of a blink of an eye. Leningradskaya, the place with the wooden shacks, where the Soviet lunar mobile got tested, where two months ago I was walking around, got completely buried by lava. Here are some links that are reflecting the eruption very well:
