Spectacular Eruption Thursday at Sakurajima Volcano on Kyushu

Sakurajima is a very active stratovolcano on the southern end of  the most southerly of Japan's main islands.  The nearest well-known city is Kagoshima, which is less than 25 kilometers from the center of the volcano.  I believe Thursday's eruption was its biggest since March, 2010.
