Eruption of Momotombo volcano, a spectacle that cannot be missed. The volcano spewed a large plume of gas and ash as seen from the rural community of Papalonal, in Leon, Nicaragua, Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015.

Quiet for many years, the volcano emitted some glowing rock on Wednesday, after gas and ash emissions began Tuesday.

In 1610, the city of Leon was destroyed during an eruption of the Momotombo and was relocated west, where it is currently located.
