Hello Anthony!

Today here I am with two big questions.

1- What is a volcano?
2- Where is Bali located?

In the news just before the holidays, there was talk of a volcano in Bali. Here is the photo of a volcano in action.

In the distance, in the photo, you see black smoke coming out of a mountain. When a volcano is in action, it sometimes spits out fire, lava or ash. It is often accompanied by black smoke.

This article gives more details on what is happening in Bali.

Here is a video which shows even more what is going on.

Bali is very far from Mexico and Quebec. It was impossible to see this smoke screen there!

I just found Bali on Google Maps, look the great distance from Montreal by clicking on this link. By plane, it takes more than 24 hours to get there.

Here you will see a good animation showing the eruption of a volcano. You can even modify data by adding gas or viscosity.

Here is also one last animation on the subject.

See you soon!
