9000 Years Old Volcano Came To Life

Today I was cleaning my room and I found a months old Newspaper under my bed... I took a brief look and I found this interesting article. This is about a volcano called Chaiten or "Chaitén"if you know how to pronounce it correctly. I did some research on the internet and I found:

"Chaitén is a volcanic caldera 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) in diameter,
17 kilometres (10.6 mi) west of the elongated, ice-capped
Michinmahuida volcano, and 10 kilometres (6 mi) northeast of Chaitén
town in the Gulf of Corcovado, in southern Chile. The most recent eruptive phase
of the volcano began on May 2, 2008, and is ongoing. According to the Global
Volcanism Program, radiocarbon dating of the last lava flow from the volcano
suggests that its last previous eruption was in 7420 BC plus or minus
75 years[...]", from Wikipedia.

The picture below was the main reason why I went on internet searching for it, it looks cool and very "science-fictionned":

According to scientists, this volcano was inactive for about 9000 years.
Why recently it started to erupt again? I don't know, maybe a Terminator just came there, if you know what I mean :)

What you see it's the volcanic eruption and lightning.
