Another Icelandic volcano erupts, makes the ground go alien

Last year, when the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull, it brought air traffic in Europe to a grinding halt.

It won’t ground air traffic, but its falling ash offered near-zero visibility to those on the ground, as visible in these images captured by Vilhelm Gunnarsson of the Icelandic news agency Visir.
