Electric Blue Volcano


Volcanoes exist everywhere throughout the world. Some are idle, a notice of past pulverization and demolish, while others are exceedingly dynamic. Some eject just once at regular intervals, others regurgitate liquid magma throughout the day and throughout the night.

For the geologic aficionado, there is no lack of astounding volcanoes on this stunning planet; Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, Etna in Italy and Piton de la Fournaise on La Reunion are only a couple of models. In any case, there is just a single volcano on the planet that has radiant blue fire and an enormous corrosive lake: Kawah Ijen in East Java, Indonesia.


Blue Flames :

Standing 9,183 feet above ocean level and crossing 12 miles, the Kawah Ijen volcano is an imposing flame spitting mountain. When you picture a functioning volcano, you ordinarily think about a caldera ejecting extraordinary tufts of gas into the air and draining intensely hot liquid magma spilling down its sides. In any case, that is a speculation and Ijen Volcano sets the best quality level for uniqueness and momentousness.

Not at all like numerous volcanoes, Ijen heaves exceedingly sulfuric gasses, which consume electric blue when com busted. Ijen flares turn and shimmer like neon flags, fluid sapphire falling over the rock during the evening — pictures can’t do it justice.

The Science Behind the Magic :

As vaporous sulfur is constrained upward with gigantic weight from underneath the Earth’s surface, the temperature of the gas mounts to as high as 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit. At the point when that gas comes into contact with the air, it touches off in astounding design, making sky blue blasts that can be up to 16 feet tall.

A portion of that sulfuric gas gathers into fluid sulfur, which combusts and streams openly down the sides of the caldera (which many confuse for “blue lava”).
