When Calbuto erupted in 2015, it prompted the evacuation of roughly 4,000 citizens from nearby cities and villages in Chile.

The incredible shot of the rare phenomenon, captured above Calbuco volcano in southern Chile, won first prize in ‘The Perfect Moment’ photo competition.

The volcano overlooks the cities of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas, which have a combined population of roughly 250,000 people. It had last erupted in 1972, so authorities were somewhat surprised by the outburst. Calbuco is a stratovolcano (also known as a composite volcano), and these are best known for having explosive eruptions.
