Drone Footage of a New Icelandic Volcano Erupting

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 11, 2023

A new eruption started yesterday in the general area of Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall volcano and drone pilot Isak Finnbogason was there to capture some footage. The shot of the lava flow beginning at the 1:00 mark is absolutely stunning.

This short video is an excerpt from a longer livestream Finnbogason did — here’s another short excerpt that shows just how large the eruption is and how close some people are getting to it:

He’s starting another livestream of the eruption in just a few minutes here (at 2:30pm ET) if you’d like to follow along.
