SS: UPDATED 11-09-14: the kilauea flow started in june and was followed by the bardarbunga eruption and both have continued to show no stopping in flow of magma. there must be some reason why there are two major hotspots flowing magma at the same time. we have had several other volcanos going into eruption lately in central america and indonesia.

Northern Lights, Milky Way and an erupting VOLCANO captured in one jaw-dropping photo in Iceland  7 November 2014 Managing to capture the elusive Northern Lights is a feat in itself. But three natural wonders all in the one photograph? That certainly makes for spectacular picture.  Scottish photographer Maciej Winiarczyk got the Northern Lights, the Milky Way and an erupting volcano all in one shot during a recent trip to Iceland. The aurora-chaser, from Wick, Caithness, was at Jokulsarlon Lagoon when he photographed the Bardarbunga volcano erupting on October 21. The eruption is Iceland’s largest in over 200 years and is still going on today.

Bardarbunga volcano update: Continuing eruption formed a 70 km² lava flow and caused 44 m of caldera subsidence since its onset on August 31 Sunday Nov 09, 2014 The volcanic eruption at Holuhraun gives no signs of weakening and continues to eject an impressive lava fountain from the central Baugur crater at a rate similar to the past few weeks. This record-breaking eruption started on the 31st of August 2014 and formed a more than 17 km long lava flow. Using the successive outlines of this lava flow as drawn on a radar image from the Icelandic Coast Guard, researchers from the Institute of Earth Sciences estimated that by now the lava has covered an area of 70 km².

Geothermal Heat in Bárðarbunga Melts Glacier October 31, 2014 The energy of the geothermal areas in Bárðarbunga volcano in Vatnajökull now measures several hundred megawatts and the melting of glacial ice is estimated at approximately 2 cubic meters per second. The melt water flows into glacial rivers Skjálfandafljót and Jökulsá á Fjöllum. However, the water flow is too insignificant to cause the rivers to swell, the Icelandic Met Office concludes in its latest update on the volcano, published at noon today.

Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano has now emitted the most lava of any volcano in that geologically active country since at least 1947, and continues with no sign of stopping. The volcano is also emitting clouds of toxic sulfur dioxide gases, which have made it all the way to Europe at times, thanks to northwesterly winds. The eruption is taking place in an old lava field known as Holuhraun, and according to National Geographic , the volcano has now vaulted so much molten rock to the surface that it would fill at least 740 Empire State Buildings.

The lava flow from the Kalauea Volcano is seen split into two separate lobes in this aerial picture taken near the village of Pahoa, Hawaii October 24, 2014. The lava began flowing from the Kilauea Volcano on June 27 and as of October 24 the flow front was 0.7 miles (1.2 km) from Pahoa Village Road, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. About 4,000 people overall live in the residential communities that the lava is approaching. Picture taken October 24, 2014.

This Oct. 26, 2014 photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey a Hawaii Volcano Observatory geologist mapping the margin of the June 27 lava flow in the open field below Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii. Dozens of residents in this rural area of Hawaii were placed on alert as flowing lava continued to advance. Authorities on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 said lava had advanced about 250 yards since Saturday morning and was moving at the rate of about 10 to 15 yards an hour, consistent with its advancement in recent days. The flow front passed through a predominantly Buddhist cemetery, covering grave sites in the mostly rural region of Puna, and was roughly a half-mile from Pahoa Village Road, the main street of Pahoa.

Lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano broke out from the main flow near a cemetery on November 6. The lava’s forward flow had been paused since October 30, county officials said. The breakouts occurred near the cemetery in Pahoa village. Lava has been pouring from the volcano since June 27. Credit: County of Hawaii (Storyful Screen capture)
