  • Holuhraun eruption site by night. 

    Around 20 earth­quakes were mea­sured last night in the Bárðar­bunga area be­tween 00 and 06:30; this is about half the num­ber of events de­tected dur­ing same pe­riod yes­ter­day. 

    The largest events oc­curred just af­ter mid­night (00:07:38, M5.3) at south­ern caldera rim of Bárðar­bunga and around five o’­clock (05:00:38 of M4.3 and 05:04:49 of M3,0) at the north­ern rim of Bárðar­bunga.

  • "As we arrived some nights later at the Jökulsárlón area, south of Vatnajokull, the aurora forecast showed a the possibility of Northern Lights at level three. Because of the nearly cloudless heaven I decided to drive to the well known glacier lagoon to try my luck. The volcano was forgotten at the moment when I was standing at the lagoon, absolutely on my own and watching the first northern lights to appear on the heavens. Right after the first pictures I was wondering about the fact that every single image had a strange red glow right above the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier."
