The Eyjafjallajökull Eruption

The Big Picture blog has some stunning images of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. The volcano erupted on April 3rd and spewed enough ash into the air to disrupt air travel to and from Europe. See photographs of the eruption in progress and its effects on the atmosphere as well as satellite images. Link -via reddit

@JoeD: Eyjafjallajökull is a compound of eyja (gen. pl. of ey = island), fjalla (gen. pl. of fjall = mountain) and jökull (glacier). It is the glacier on the mountains opposite to the Westman islands.
