 Assets Resources 2008 05 Chilevolcano
Believe it or not, the above photo is from an actual volcanic eruption that took place near the coast of Chile a few days ago.

From io9:

The results, which you see here, are called a “dirty thunderstorm,” and are quite rare. Nobody is certain what causes them, but according to National Geographic it’s believed to be “the result of rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in the plume collid[ing] to produce static charges—just as ice particles collide to create charge in regular thunderstorms.
