February 2, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
The Shinmoedake volcano continues to erupt in southwestern Japan, shooting out boulders, ash and smoke.

It's the sixth time it has erupted since the volcano burst to life last week after 50 years of relative calm.

The volcano is in a remote mountain range on the southern island of Kyushu.

Local residents have been evacuated and no serious injuries have been reported.
