The Volcano Eruption.

      From ancient times the eruption ofvolcanoes has paralyzed human minds with fear. The ancient tribes used toworship the powerful force of the volcano and they sacrificed their fellowtribesmen in hope for mercy and to calm the raging element. In the old dayspeople believed that sounds made by volcanoes belonged to the devil and thelava was considered to be the river of death, absorbing everything on her way. The heat incinerates herds ofanimals, it burns tens of thousands of plants and it destroys settlementsacross tens of kilometers. The might of the volcano spits the stones into thedistressed environment. The stones take their place in thehistory of the natural phenomena as they fossilize into great layers of magmaand leave the signature of the volcano for millions of years.  The dark cloud of volcano ashes spreads for hundreds ofkilometers and sends everything that is alive into a panic and forces peopleand animals to escape in order to survive. For days, and for many kilometersaround, the sky is lit with an eerie orange glow. People thatare situated even far away from the active volcano can read a newspaper atnight without a lamp. Volcanic eruption is one of the most powerful and mesmerizingnatural phenomena that will amaze human generations forever.
