There are many things that occur in the nature, but we take them for granted.

This is a natural phenomena that occurs when a volcano erupts, and the lightning start zapping in a volcanic plume. This actually looks like the devil himself has decided to get out of hell! The first ever picture of this phenomenon, was shot during the eruption of the Chaiten Volcano in Chile, and it was taken by Carlos Gutierrez. Needles to say that this picture became viral on the internet and that it still amazes people all over the world. The occurrence of volcanic lightning has also been seen above the Mount Augustine volcano in Alaska, over Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy, and over the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. Scientists say that these volcanic lightnings are a result of the colliding of the ash, ice particles, and rock particles found in the volcanic plume, just as the regular electric discharges are generated in regular thunderstorms, when the ice particles collide with each other.
