The people of Sicily woke up to a very surreal sight.

Etna volcano “exhales” almost perfect smoke into the Sicilian sky – BBC writes.

A new crater has opened on Europe's largest active volcano, causing an unusual gas eruption. The so-called volcanic vortex rings consist of the shape of a trumpet and the speed of gas jets.

The view is very surreal and of course attracts tourists like a magnet:
