Europe's tallest active volcano, Mount Etna, put on a stunning display May 20, 2022, with hot lava and plumes of smoke spewing meters up into the sky and red lava flowing down the mountain, heading for the ‘Lion Valley.'
Etna, located above the Sicilian town of Catania, often erupts but rarely causes damage, and is believed to have the longest written record of eruptions than any other volcano, with its first recorded observation going back to 425 B.C.
The last major eruption occurred in 1992.
