On March 20th, 2010, an eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano began in Fimmvörðuháls, the area between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, and a 0.3-mile-long fissure opened on the northern part of the pass. Just over a week later, the eruption produced a 300-meter-long fissure and new craters were seen erupting and traveling north.
This image of the eruption at Fimmvörðuháls was taken at dawn on March 27, 2010.
