SICILY (NBC) - Sicily's Mount Etna has been putting on quite a show for spectators who dare get close enough to see.

Europe's only active volcano sent streams of red hot lava and ash shooting into the sky this weekend.

The latest eruption did not have any affect on air travel in the area. Experts also said nearby residents were not in danger, but the ash left quite a mess on cars and on streets.

Eruptions are common at Etna but rarely cause damage.
