A volcano is an opening, or rupture, in a planet's surface or crust, which allows hot magma, ash and gases to escape from below the surface. The word volcano is derived from the name of Vulcano island off Sicily which in turn, was named after Vulcan, the Roman god of fire.
Also in Australia there were volcanic eruptions long ago.Many of these eruptions created lakes, which we saw in the Tablelands in Queensland. One of the lakes is Lake Barrine. We walked around it. It is a five kilometers'walk. The Lake was created 10,000 years ago. The eruption must have been enormous. The video you see, shows the eruption of one of the volcanoes on Hawaii
