An active volcano on Iceland

As many of you probably know by now, there’s an active volcano on Iceland. It’s not a huge one (atm), which is good in many ways, but also for the fact that we get a lot of sublime photos and videos from there. Some drone footage is out of this world.

I’ve been paying attention to Iceland (and others) for quite some time now. The arthquake activity has been intense with tens of thousands of earthquakes leading up to the eruption itself.

Anyway, I want to share som videos and YouTube channels that are cool – so here they are. Note that if you see people or helicopters, they’re mostly scientists and press. Civilians are not allowed there.

Let’s start with the live video from ruv.is:

Speaking of live video, here’s one that collects the video feed from several volcanos around the world:
