Iceland's most famous and historically most active volcano can best be described as an intermediate volcanic form between a crater row and a stratovolcano. It is located west of Iceland's SE volcanic rift-zone. Hekla erupts a magma type that is unique for Iceland, intermediate between highly silicic and andesitic composition.

It's said to go off about every 10 years so I guess its on time
The most recent eruption was relatively short, it started at 18:18 on February 26, 2000 and lasted until March 8. It was a VEI3 eruption producing a lava volume of 0.189 km3 DRE / 0.29 km3 and 107 m3 of tephra. The eruption went through four phases:
initial explosive stage
bursts of Strombolian eruption
effusion of lava

This cam is North of Hekla and looks South towards Eyjafjallajokull.
Hekla has NOT gone off.
