Volcano in Eyjafjallajokull, Iceland

One thing thats made news all of last week is the volcano in Eyjafjallajokull (I never managed to spell it - but it's something like this - ay-yah-FYAH'-plah-yer-kuh-duhl).

This volcano in the southern Iceland has sent a large cloud of volcanic ash in the sky. The cloud is traveling across Europe sending flight schedules for a complete toss!! 

Needless to say, this will make the visibility poor for any flights traveling through it. And supposedly, it's not good for those mega plane engines.

These pictures of the volcano caught my attention!!

The first one is from someone on the ground.


The second one from someone when he was high up in the air!!


And if you want to have a look at how it is impacting Europe, check the map with the ash cloud below.


And last but not the least, this eerie looking picture which bears a close resemblance to a skeleton!!



Last but not the least, are you interested in knowing where the volcano ash cloud is at the moment? Or do you want to have an overview of the volcanic ash cloud map?
