Mount Etna erupts spewing molten lava thousands of feet above the Sicilian countryside

Mount Etna erupts again - sixteenth paroxysmal eruption recorded this year, and is spewing molten lava above the Sicilian countryside.

Watch the video below

The eruption, which was captured on camera from Acireale, near Cantania, sent thick plumes of smoke and ash over the Italian island last night. The breathtaking footage shows the volatile volcano emitting streams of hot lava from the earth's core.

It may be recalled that Mount Etna's last major eruption was in 1992 - causing a fast-flowing river of molten lava to cascade down the slopes of the mountain.

The fiery volcano, currently standing at 10,925 feet tall, is still in constant activity. Astonishingly, it is steadily growing, and has been for 500,000 years, when eruptions began.
