Drone footage offers close look at erupting Icelandic volcano 1


New drone footage taken on March 23 shows lava bubbling from the crater of an Icelandic volcano.

The drone operator braved the snow and biked seven kilometres to the volcano, which is not accessible by road.

The volcano erupted on March 19 in a peninsula in southwest Iceland. It was the first eruption in the peninsula since the 12th century.

  16. There’s something unnerving about watching rock behave like water.

    Would you give the height of the volcano as it develops? Nice footage March 26/2021 Great

    This is what I imagined the result would be while doing my fifth grade science project.

  19. Phantastic footage! (And, btw., I appreciate it very much that you didn’t spoil it with dramatizing music. There is no sound but the pictures speak for themselves…)

  20. Repent to Jesus Christ!

    Are you a sinner?
