(WVUE) - A plume of debris and smoke shoots into the air as Mount Tavurvur blows its cap in Papua New Guinea.

The video was captured by a tourist late last week and uploaded to YouTube.

Video shows a shock wave rippling through the clouds seconds before a sonic boom rocks the boat.

Captured by Phil McNamara, the video was uploaded on September 5 following the August 29 eruption.
