Mount Etna's spectacular nighttime eruption: Volcano shoots lava into the air

Volcano

During a volcano eruption, chunks of rocks and lava are ejected out of the volcano. These things are projectile volcanic bombs. For a projectile motion, an object has to be ejected, thrown, moved, etc. This is a perfect example, because the volcano blasts out the chunks of rocks and lava.
