It was a regular afternoon in the city of Pompeii on August 24th, A.D. 79. But then, disaster struck. There was a loud boom and then the whole sky got covered with black clouds, and the sun stopped shinning.
What smells like that? Why is the sky that color, its daytime? Oh No! There's a volcano over in the distance!
