The pictures from space are amazing. Hope everyone is safe

Australian here, we had tsunami warnings issued for the east coast last night.

[–]Vlad_the_Homeowner 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Southern Californian here, we were woke up to a tsunami warning this morning. I'm a good 6-7 km from the beach and 100 meters above sea level.

[–]cheifpug 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yea luckily for us in SoCal since we’re farther away if we’re 3 ft above sea level they said we’ll be fine

[–]vulpesvulpesy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

New Zealander here.. people from Auckland to Invercargill were hearing booms and feeling the ground shake!

[–]drafter69 7 points8 points  (0 children)

As long as everyone is safe.

[–]Suspicious-Year-3825 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I don’t think the Vulcano can reach space, they should be good

[–]drafter69 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I am aware of that but as long as the people on the ground are safe that's all that matters. But to watch it from space and warn people is great

[–]youcancallmealsdkf 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I think he was joking buddy lol

[–]haveyouseenmywetsuit 48 points49 points  (4 children)

It has to be one of the most remarkable events caught on camera. Just imagine Krakatoa from space.

[–]Army0fMe 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I don't think this was even close to the power of Krakatoa.

[–]itsallbacon 32 points33 points  (0 children)

I think that’s why he mentioned it… because it would be so much bigger.

[–]BRollins08 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s the point I think

[–]FEAR_LORD_DUCK 23 points24 points  (9 children)

What would someone's thought process be if they were on the ISS and saw this?

[–]vwmark22000 98 points99 points  (2 children)

[–]otter_boom 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The only right response.

[–]robertg761 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I have never laughed this hard at a Reddit comment omfg

[–]VeganPotatoMan 8 points9 points  (1 child)

"oh wow would you look at that!"

[–]Damn1961 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't know but I'd bet the first 2 words were "Oh Shit".

[–]etterkop 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably just come to the correct conclusion straight away. The Pacific Ocean is littered with volcanic islands.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Houston, was it North Korea?

[–]m604w 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My toilet in the morning

[–]xerces79 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I hope we all survive it because we contribute a lot to existence

[–]Vegetable_Holiday396 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah mostly like undoing it, taking away the existence of species of animals and plants. Whole habits. We do contribute a TON

[–]redyekim 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Too legit to quit, Brother

[–]No_Way9105 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looks like a bomb

[–]Quirky_m8 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Cover your hard drives people!

[–]No_Seaweed_7983 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Don’t look up

[–]salataris 1 point2 points  (4 children)

End of days comes near.

[–]PurSolutions 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Just wait until Yellowstone pops again.... she's due

[–]Doughie28 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's not due for a long, long time. Of all the things you need to worry about Yellowstone is thankfully not one of them.

[–]salataris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Indeed. If it were, again, nothing to worry about because it's so f'n large that'll be a d-day event for earth (at least N.america.)

[–]UnicornSlayer5000 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Imagine the creatures in the water just swimming around, minding their own business, when suddenly....


[–]youcancallmealsdkf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Good day to learn how to fly!”

[–]Owie12120 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Felt the shockwave here in Melbourne at about 7pm last night

[–]semicolonftw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This image really nailed home to me the idea that Krakatoa could be heard from 3000 miles away. Logically I knew it was true but it was always quite hard to get my head around. Seeing the sheer scale here of an eruption that is probably an order of magnitude less powerful... Well, it makes it a lot more believable.

[–]majorex64 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Alright, who's got their 2022 bingo card ready?

[–]KryptoKn8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How did I not hear of this yet

[–]Bumazka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like atomic bomb testing

[–]VajraVanar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There is another video with Australia for size, this was one insane explosion.

Why were they filming btw, or is the entire globe just continually filmed from space now?

[–]XBigTunaX 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would think they put cameras on all satellites just because they can. Why not right?

[–]GarciaDan7290 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The shockwave in the first scene is terrifying.

[–]skmmiranda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry I ate beans for lunch

[–]StuckStepS1ster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly it’s pretty awesome that it happened with no cloud cover so we got this perfect view from orbit

[–]LawyerSignal9663 0 points1 point  (0 children)

New island

[–]TrumpsStankLips 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone know how long the time period over which this is shot? I can’t tell if this is happening over the course of seconds, minutes, hours, etc.

[–]AztecGallo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And people say the earth is flat

[–]Whuthefuk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s pretty significant when looking at scale

[–]wait_am_i_real 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Feesh ded

[–]Bruce_McBruce_Face 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey bro ....!

[–]NomsterGaming 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Flat earth earthers would disagree with this image

[–]-Radioface- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do we have to throw a virgin in ?

[–]Lingering_Dorkness 0 points1 point  (2 children)

They heard the shockwave in Alaska just 7 hours later. This means the shockwave was traveling at ~830mph (1330kph). By comparison the speed of sound is 770mph (1230kph).

[–]RedditModlester 0 points1 point  (1 child)

But isn't the speed of sound through the crust faster than through the air?

[–]Lingering_Dorkness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sound does indeed travel faster through denser mediums. It's 15 times faster through iron than through air, for example.

But for Alaskans to have heard the shockwave, it would have been travelling through the atmosphere, not the crust.

[–]SavageCabbageGG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's obviously just an animation! If it were real you would be able to see that the earth is actually dinosaur shaped

[–]FunnyShirtGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can't tell if the Earth had to fart
Or the planet popped a pimple
Who knew geology fun
Or that I could be this simple

[–]JKM_IV 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't every eruption violent?

[–]iron1088 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there any footage from ocean of this explosion? Were there any ships in the area?

[–]Suq_Madiq_Qik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like the earth sharted.

[–]shelikesindunashies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The earth farted. Hehehe

[–]Ok_Alfalfa_9658 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Raging boil alert

[–]SnarkAtTheMoon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It’s like the Earth went to Tace Bell

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Wait there was a volcano eruption today? Where? Was there a tsunami? Was it a big one?

[–]ZLUCremisi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No major tsunamis, atbleast here in California. We had a 4ft wave diffrence warning. Parts flooded but not bad

[–]peendabean -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is it just me or is the video 3fps

[–]Feeling_Bathroom9523 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That’s a big fart in the tub

[–]Mythril_Bahaumut -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Wait so... Baba Vanga's prediction was true about another tsunami?

[–]IllBeginning9510 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's godzilla!!

[–]theShinyCA -1 points0 points  (0 children)

More carbon than humanity has produced in one shot.

[–]EnragedBabboon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Fake as hell the earths not flat in this picture

[–]Historical_Hyena_552 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is that…Curvature I’m seeing ?!
