The Iceland volcano

I’ve been fascinated with volcanoes for a long time and, whenever, there’s a new eruption somewhere, I start looking for images and news on it. The newest eruption, located in Iceland, has fortunately not posed a significant danger. There have been some interesting raw footage available online. Here is the most recent that I’ve found:

The eruption is between between two glaciers, Eyjafjallajoekull and Myrdalsjoekull, and 3,600 feet above sea level. Since it’s not directly affecting either glacier there is little likelihood of flooding as long as the erupting fissure did not extend beneath the glacier. The area, called Fimmvorduhals, lies on a popular walking path over a mountain pass.
