    The final breath of a dying star: Stunning image shows how our sun will one day die

    It is a stunning image of the dying breath of a star - and a glimpse into the future of our own sun.

    The European Space Observatory’s Very Large Telescope captured the unique glow from planetary nebula ESO 577-24 as it was deep in its death throes.

    The faint glow persists for only a short time — around 10,000 years, a blink of an eye in astronomical terms.

    People were urged to stay away from the site after the explosion sent lava trundling down the hillside - and experts fear it could blow again.

    Russia probes 'collapsed mountain' amid claims it was caused by meteorite or UFO

    The Russian army has been sent in to investigate a collapsed mountain in Siberia amid claims a meteorite or UFO caused the massive rockfall.

    A massive 525ft high mound is now substantially blocking the Bureya River, threatening remote villages with flooding.

    So much rock shifted that it would fill 13,600 Olympic-sized swimming pools, according to reports.

    The Russian army has been dispatched to the scene to determine the cause of the rockfall.

    The military is being tasked with 'moving the mountain' using explosives and equipment to allow the water to flow again.

    But experts say nearby rock is fractured and a second gargantuan landslide is not ruled out.

    Rescuers recovered six more bodies buried under tons of mud from a landslide that crashed onto a hilly village on Indonesia’s main island of Java, bringing the death toll to 15, officials said Tuesday.

    The landslide that plunged down surrounding hills just before sunset Monday buried 30 houses in Sirnaresmi village in West Java’s Sukabumi district. Sixty people who lost their homes were forced to move to a temporary shelter, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

    Television video showed relatives wailing as they watched rescuers pull a mud-caked body from a devastated hamlet. It was placed in a blue bag and taken away for burial.

    Mount Etna erupts sending huge ash cloud into sky and causing flight chaos

    Italy's Mount Etna has erupted, sending a huge cloud of ash into the sky and causing flight chaos.

    Europe's highest and most active volcano erupted today and caused the closure of Catania airport on Sicily's eastern coast.

    Flights were being forced to divert to other airports, according to local reports.

    Dramatic video footage shows gigantic plumes of grey smoke covering the clouds and filling the sky.

    A chain of around 130 earth tremors have rocked the volcano since around 8am, Italy's National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology said, with the strongest posting a magnitude of 4.0.

    "Due to the eruption of Etna, Catania airspace was closed at 13.00UTC," a tweet by Air Live said.

    Krakatoa volcano erupts in Indonesia before 'causing tsunami'

    At least 220 people have been killed and 800 injured after a tsunami struck beaches in Indonesia overnight.

    A further 30 people are still missing after a volcanic eruption caused a deadly wave to crash over a pop concert where band Seventeen were playing on Saturday evening, sending people fleeing for their lives.

    Two members of the band, the guitarist and the bass player, have been confirmed dead, along with the road manager and a crew member, while the drummer is missing.

    Seventeen's bassist M. Awal 'Bani' Purbani, road manager Oki Wijaya, guitarist Herman Sikumbang and crew member Ujang, all died the lead singer Riefian 'Ifan' Fajarsyah said.

    The 20 foot high wave hit beaches around the Sunda Strait, between the islands of Java and Sumatra at about 9.30pm local time, destroying 430 houses, nine hotels and 10 ships.

    Scientists say the tsunami was probably caused by the eruption of Anak Krakatau, a volcanic island formed over years from the nearby Krakatau volcano. The Meteorology and Geophysics agency also said tidal waves may have been strengthened by the full moon.

    Undersea landslides from the eruption of Anak Krakatau - an island formed from previous blasts from Krakatoa - were recorded 24 minutes before the tsunami struck.

    Eyewitnesses have described fleeing for their lives as beachfront hotels and homes were swept away in the province of Banten in the Strait, when the wall of water hit.

    The group later released a statement saying their bass player, guitarist and road manager were found dead, while two other band members and the wife of one of the performers remained missing.

    A confirmed tornado touched down near Port Orchard in Kitsap County about 45 miles west of Seattle, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle. The service said it hit shortly before 2 p.m. Local media said several homes were damaged and trees toppled. CBS affiliate KIRO-TV in Washington reports the tornado hit before a warning could be issued. Debris, including leaves and litter, was apparently lifted at least 6,000 feet into the atmosphere, KIRO added. The Kitsap County Sheriff's said there was "catastrophic damage" in the Port Orchard area, including downed power lines. They also said local gas companies are checking their systems for any leaks. Authorities also urged motorists to stay clear of the area. There wasn't any immediate reports of any injuries. NWS said it will send a team Wednesday to the area and said it's too early to "speculate on the strength of the tornado."

    Mount Etna eruption sends lava spewing and huge column of gas into night sky

    Mount Etna has erupted sending a huge column of gas into the night sky.

    The volcano, in Sicily, was pictured spewing lava in the small hours of Wednesday.

    Mesmerising images show molten rock trickling down the slopes of the mountain - western Europe's highest active volcano.

    Explosive activity continues at the eastern vent of the Southeast Crater.

    The nearby craters of the Bocca Nuova and Cratere di Nordest are also active, according to Reuters news agency.

    This eruption seems to be small but there have been dangerous blasts in recent years - in March 2017 ten people were injured including a BBC camera crew when spewing lava exploded on impact with snow.

    He says onlookers and surfing experts are confident he had beaten the previous record of 80ft - set earlier this year by Brazilian Rodrigo Koxa.

    Tom of Newquay, Cornwall, said surfing the wave was like ''running away from a raging bull''.
