Since January 22, social media has been filled with photos and videos that show the raw and terrifying power of Mayon's volcanic eruptions.
But while the eruptions are hazardous to the people and livelihood in Camarines Sur, it cannot be denied that this display of nature's power is breathtaking to behold.
Residents and tourists alike have captured amazing photos of the moments Mayon released its fury.
But on the morning of January 26, a different view was seen over Mayon.
Instead of the piping hot lava, a colorful rainbow hovered above the active volcano.
The stunning photos were captured by GMA News reporter Raffy Tima.
GMA News posted the photos on Instagram and netizens commented that it might be a sign that the worst is over.
One netizen said: "Magiging ligtas ang lahat dahil ang bahaghari ay pahiwatig na may pag-asa at di na muling mangyayari ang pinakamalalang dilubyo na nangyari noon."
Another said: "Baka di na mauulit ang pagputok. Last na yan as the rainbow is saying to people."
Mayon is the most active volcano in the Philippines.
It started showing volcanic activity on January 13 when it spewed ash, rocks, mud, and lava as it prepares for an eruption.
On January 22, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) raised Alert Level 4.
Officials say residents should prepare for a possible Alert Level 5 or hazardous eruption.
