A remarkable video has emerged from Vanuatu of a videographer standing on the edge of the crater of a volcano when it erupts.

The spectacular clip, which was recorded on Yasur volcano on Tanna Island on July 16, shows a man setting up a camera on the edge of the crater when suddenly there is a loud blast from inside the volcano and lava shoots into the air right in front of him.

"My friend Geoff was setting up a GoPro camera at the crater's edge," the filmer said.

"The volcano suddenly had a huge explosion, sending lava bombs flying hundreds of feet through the air," he added.
