The following video, captured by Volcano Discovery, shows strong strombolian explosion from Batu Tara volcano, Flores Sea, Indonesia on the evening of July 2, 2015.

The eruption is preceded by a gradual build-up with increasing degassing and rockfalls as a result of inflation of the crater. Immediately before the explosion, glow becomes visible as the magma is about to break through the crust sealing the vent.
