These extraordinary images show the full force of Mother Nature as a Chilean volcano erupts for the first time in 50 years.

Ash has been thrown six miles up into the sky and the South American government has ordered the evacuation of thousands of residents.

Winds fanned the ash toward neighbouring Argentina, darkening the sky in the ski resort city of San Carlos de Bariloche, in the centre of the country, and its airport has also been closed.

It was not immediately clear which of the chain's four volcanoes had erupted because of ash cover and weather conditions. The chain last saw a major eruption in 1960.

Chile's chain of about 2,000 volcanoes is the world's second largest after Indonesia. Some 50 to 60 are on record as having erupted, and 500 are potentially active.

Hell yeah

I can't believe the amount of stuff Chile has gone through within the past year. I'm thankful any family and friends we have down there have been ok.

This is nothing new and something completely normal. When you have that much energy hitting our atmposphere a lighting stomr like that always happens. It happened in Iceland, and it happened in Mt St. Helens in 1980 when lightning was reported.

And of course Chili sits right next to the Pacifics rim of fire and on one the most active and volatile faults in the world.

In several other languages the country is actually called Chili, including in Dutch and French. :)
