Eruption over Antigua Guatemala

I was recently visiting Antigua Guatemala with a friend and on the second day of our trip the volcano Volcán de Fuego started erupting. Once the sun set you could see the lava coming out of the top of the mountain and the flow became increasingly violent as the night continued. This was taken shortly after midnight when it seemed that the eruption of lava was at its peak.
