Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung has seen repeated eruptions in recent weeks, with billowing smoke and incandescent lava flows emerging from the volcano.

Located on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, the volcano had lay dormant for hundreds of years when an intermittent string of eruptionsbegan in 2010. In February of this year, at least 16 people were killed and hundreds were forced to flee when the volcano erupted in a series of huge blasts.

Take a look at the surreal and terrifying scenes in Sumatra below.
