Such a shame that the low lying cloud cover is blocking the view tonight as it cleared just enough a minute ago to show huge lava bombs (??) being thrown up and out of the crater, some big firey explosions! also it seems there are some crazy people in a car or jeep driving right to the foot of the volcano ( as you can // could see the headlights moving around! not the best time to visit with the amount of lava spewing out!

Damn clouds!

She's up and at it again (the volcano - not me

Huge plume sitting atop her on Hvollsvelli cam and it looks like a good day for viewing, too

Morning all.

Yep Moorf, still blowing well this morning.
Let us hope that "ribbon" of clouds in the middle of the screen, top of the volcano, will go away soon so we have a better look at the steam produced. (poro cam)
Just a an impression but it's possible the right part is steaming. But it just could be rolling clouds of course.
A better view of it on the vodaphone

Good morning to you all.

Some update's from the MET office Iceland and a pic from 11 may:

Update on activityEruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland
Assessment - 12 May 2010 18:15
Ashfall was reported in Vík í Mýrdal and in Meðalland and ash mist was reported in Álftaver. Several lightnings were recorded on the ATDnet (UK’s National Weather Service) since five o'clock yesterday until noon today; see IMO's map of lightning locations for the past seven days, based on that data.

No major changes are seen in the activity. The ash plume has slightly decreased since yesterday and is heading east-souteast. Water discharge at Gígjökull is low. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end. The above is based on a status report issued collectively by the Icelandic Meteorological Office and the Institute of Earth Sciences at 15:00.

Various photographs of Eyjafjallajökull, since volcanic activity began, are presented in another article.

i found this site with some good information from volcano''s around the world.

News and activity updates from Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Iceland)

Mar, 21 - May, 11 2010Tuesday, May 11, 2010
Eyjafjallajøkull volcano (Iceland), eruption update: increased explosive activity - new disruption of European air traffic
16h44 PM | Age: 1 days
After a few days of milder activity, the explosions have again increased in intensity, creating ash plumes of 5-6 km height.
The Icelandic Met Office reports: "The crater is getting higher. Lava flow is low and not visible on cameras. In the afternoon there was a slight increase in explosive activity, which resulted in a higher plume for a while.
Seismic tremor has been similar for the past 3 days. A sequence of earthquakes started around 11:00 this morning at depths of 18 - 20 km and magnitude range 1 - 2. The earthquake sequence this morning indicates that magma is still flowing in from the mantle. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end."

The ash clouds moved by different wind patterns to a strong southerly direction are now howering over SW Europe and parts of Morocco, forcing today the closure of airports in Spain and Morocco and cancellation of hundreds of flights.

I wish the low cloud would clear so we could see it from Poro cam cause like you say the plume looks impressive right now.

It also looks as though the plume has changed direction somewhat

Hi there fooks. Just a new official report 13 may:

Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull - Status Report: 16:00 GMT, 13 May 2010
Icelandic Meteorological Office and Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland

Compiled by: Steinunn S. Jakobsdóttir, Elín Björk Jónasdóttir, Björn Oddson, Sigrún Hreinsdóttir.

Based on:
IMO seismic monitoring; IES-IMO GPS monitoring; IMO hydrological data; IMO weather radar measurements, web cameras, ATDnet – UK Met. Offices lightning detection system, NOAA satellite images, observations from aircraft and web-based ash reports from the public.

Eruption plume:
Height (a.s.l.): Mainly 6 km / 20,000 ft, highest up to ~ 9 km / 30,000 ft. The wind is calm over the eruption site and unstable air south of it, which does affect the height of the ash cloud.
Heading: Southeast.
Colour: Grey.
Tephra fallout: Ongoing ashfall since 0600h reported from south of Eyjafjöll, Berjanes, Drangshlíð and Skarðshlíð. Ashfall from midnight until morning at Skógar. The ash is somewhat finer today than yesterday.
Lightning: Twenty lightning were recorded on the ATDnet since last night.
Noises: No reports.

Low water discharge at Gígjökull.

Conditions at eruption site:
The upper part of the ash cloud and the lower part of Eyjafjallajökull could be seen from the aircraft, the rest was in clouds. The top of the ash cloud was at ~ 5 km / 17.000 ft. No great changes seen in Gígjökull.

Seismic tremor:
Similar to previous days.

At around 1600h 4 earthquakes were measured beneath Eyjafjallajökull, all of them were located at shallow depth.

GPS deformation:
Horizontal displacements towards the center of Eyjafjallajökull volcano and subsidence.

Overall assessment:
No major changes are seen in the activity. The ash plume has increased since yesterday. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end.

wow very dramatic !

Just missed a lightning strike!

Ash cloud is blowing toward Poro cam, unless the wind changes, we won't see much from there today.

posted on May, 14 2010 @ 10:52 AM
Heres a link showing some pretty good photos. Would you like to be there? Im sure i dont.

posted on May, 14 2010 @ 11:19 AM
Same here, looks cool but you wouldnt want to be stuck in that for two years!

I don't know if you saw it last night but there was some huge bolts of lightening in the ash cloud and I mean huge, very spectacular!

Just curious as to wether anyone knows but
