When Calbuco began erupting Wednesday evening, sending plumes of ash into the evening sky, it was the first time the volcano had erupted in 42 years. While there have been no reports of injuries, according to news reports, thousands have been evacuated from nearby town Ensenada and flights in the area have been canceled. Outside of Chile, much of the focus has been on the splendor created by the eruption, magnificent sunsets created, in part, by the ash that had been shot into the air.
