(Video) Rare Footage Of Big Ben Volcano Erupting

Mawson Peak Erupts Again

The headline might be a little misleading as Big Ben includes Mawson Peak which at 2,745 metres tall is actually the highest mountain on Australian Territory (North of The Antarctic). The Volcano is situated on Heard Island and the location is so remote that any eruption is seldom seen by people. The recent eruption was filmed by Scientists travelling on board the CSIRO research vessel – Investigator. This Volcano has erupted at least 3 other time since 2000 but is normally only spotted through satellite imagery.
