A bird’s eye view of Batu Tara Volcano!!🌋
Batu Tara is a small volcano on an isolated island called Komba . It is located 50 km north of Lembata island in the Flores sea. It is highly active, producing spectacular strombolian explosions with abundant incandescent bombs and ash plumes rising to an elevation of hundreds of kilometres.
Batu Tara lies on top of a larger stratovolcano, with its base reaching 3000 meters below sea level. It has a large central summit crater of 900 x 700 meters diameter open to the east.
The scar you see on its eastern side, is a flank collapse feature similar to the Sciara del Fuoco of Italy's Stromboli volcano. Vegetation covers the flanks of Batu Tara to within 50m of the 748m high summit.

Batu Tara lies on a young and thin oceanic crust north of the main volcanic Sunda-Banda Arc. This is the boundary collision of the north moving Australian with the Sunda tectonic plate. Geochemically, it is noted for its potassic leucite-bearing basanitic and tephritic rocks.
The first historical eruption occurred in 1852 with explosions and lava flows.
On July 1st, 2006, Batu Tara was observed erupting again. An ash plume rose to 5000 ft (ca 2 km). Since then, it has been erupting frequently. Most eruptions were strombolian or vulcanian type, with explosions producing ash plumes of 1-2 km high, similar to Anak Krakatau's activity.

In March 2007, a phase of stronger eruptions prompted the evacuation of 15,000 people from nearby Lembata Island.
If you want to visit this island to view Batu Tara, it’s about a 4 hour boat ride from Lewoleba, the capital of Lembata Regency.
