Check out the massive eruption

A volcanic eruption in Central Africa could be the biggest in 100 years.

Experts say the Nyamulagira volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been shooting lava 400m into the sky.

That's lava shooting up even higher than New York's Empire State Building!

So far there's no danger to the people living in the nearby town of Goma.

Park rangers have even set up a camp so tourists can enjoy the fireworks from a safe distance!
