2/16/2012 -- Sakurajima Volcano -- showing activity after quiet down

After a few short weeks of quieting down -- Sakurajima Volcano has sprung back to elevated activity . Over the past several months, we saw daily, or multiple times per day eruptions occur at this active Japanese volcano (located in south japan). Past week and a half (feb 2012) we saw a quiet down at this normally very active volcano. Now it appears that things are picking up in pace again. mirrored with permission from: http://www.youtube.com/cubhf137
