Lightning in the dust cloud is interesting phenomena.

Also who builds a nuclear power plant next to an active volcano??? :o ...japanese apparently :s

Why even mention the nuclear plant? 50 km is an extremely safe distance for a volcano of this size.

#3 My thought exactly. Just another sensational headline that ends up diminishing the entire event.

#3, perhaps because 50km is actually not a safe distance away. The caldera is 20km in diameter, to give you perspective from the video. Previous eruptions have sent fragments as much as 1000km away.

#5 And by fragments you actually mean ash, not ballistic projectiles? Otherwise it would need an ejection speed of min. 11275 km/h - in a frictionless environment. The peak of the ballistic curve would be at a height of 500 km - more than twice the height of the orbit of the ISS.

The nuclear industry would never be that stupid.
I mean, they would never put multiple reactors next to a fault line such that a tsunami would knock them out and cause them to melt down or put the spent fuel rods on the roof of the reactor so they would fall into the fire increasing the mess.

No, not the nuclear industry, they are safe, safe, safe.

#2 I agree, I found the lightning in the ash clouds fascinating too...
