Anak Krakatau Erupting with the Stars Above

Anak Krakatau Erupting Stars Above

Krakatoa just doesn't know when to stop. The island volcano in Indonesia has been erupting for the past 1500 years. In its most famous eruption in 1883, it destroyed two-thirds of the island of Krakatoa and killed more than 36,000 people. In 1927, another eruption gave birth to Anak Krakatau, a volcano which has since risen to more than three hundred metres in height. Anak Krakatau's latest eruption began in 2008 and continues today (as seen above).
