    Mount Tavurvur destroyed the town of Rabaul when it erupted simultaneously with nearby Mount Vulcan in 1994.

    Put your headphones in for the sonic boom around 26 seconds in.

    This video was taken by Phil McNamara, a taxi driver from Queensland, Australia, reports the Brisbane Times.

    We saw it erupting and the ladies from Kokopo Beach Bungalows where we were staying said they could take us out on the boat to get a closer look. I thought I might as well try and capture something you rarely get to see.

    Here's where it happened.
