Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Time Lapse

I don't know whether Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano got its name when the geologist in charge of coming up with a name for it got up from his desk to get some coffee or find some inspiration, and while pondering on the majesty of the volcano's topological features, the guy's cat inadvertently walked across the computer keyboard, pressed a bunch of random keys, including the 'send' button and sent it to Iceland's equivalent of the academy of science. The rest, as they say, is history :)

Or maybe not... Regardless, I think we can all agree that the following time lapse video of the volcano is nothing short of mesmerizing.




And here is an impressive picture of the lightning produced by the volcanic ash


And if you still can't get enough of Iceland, have some more:
