Check out these pictures of Mount Etna - Europe's largest volcano - erupting!

Plumes of lava and ash filled the night sky over the island of Sicily, in Italy, on Tuesday.

Eruptions of the volcano aren't uncommon - sometimes planes have to alter their routes to avoid flying through ash clouds.

That didn't happen this time - though roads close by were covered with volcanic stones.

There are several inhabited villages on the slopes of Mount Etna - which is almost 10 thousand feet high.

There were no reports of any injuries though.
