Last Saturday around midnight, the skies of South-East Iceland were lit up by a blood-red shimmer from the lava spurting out of a rift that had suddenly opened up in the ice capped ground next to the Eyjafjallajökull glacier.The power of the eruption has been steadily growing and the lava explosions are said to reach up to 150 meters into the air and the volcanic ash is said to stretch as far as 4-8 kilometers into the sky.
The eruption next to Eyjafjallajökull is predicted to continue for a longer period of time. This volcanic eruption is an amazing spectacle that can be
observed from a safe distance. At the moment the best conditions for catching a glimpse of the phenomenon are in the area of Fljótshlíð.
