The Colima Volcano

Colima volcano in Mexico unleashed a sudden and stormy eruption. Magma and lightning shot into the air on January 18th, 2017.

The volcano, which stands 2,000-feet high, has erupted over 40 times since 1576.

Despite the apparent ferocity of the eruption, the volcano quickly calmed down and looked as though nothing had even happened the next day.

If you missed out on the eruption and want to see one live, you’ll want to check out Mout Yasur, a volcano that’s been erupting daily for 800 years.


“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
