The Earth is bleeding!

Not astronomy, but so dramatic!

The new volcano on Iceland at Geldingadur still small, but becasue it's magma is comng from many miles down is likely to continue to erupt for a long time, and could develop into a new shield volcano. Already, it is predicted to flow into a much larger area by the end of next week, as the lava lake it sits in overtops the the valley it sits in.

It is expected to spread over a much broader area.

Actually Randolph, the Geldingadur eruption has stopped! See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZGleOgreBY

Sure, Iceland is an extraordinary island that sits on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, so new eruptions and revivals of dormant sites may be expected, but this one has gone silent. For now!
