Lava Eruption Inside A Volcano Captured By Drone

Watch: Lava Eruption in a Volcano Captured by Drone

The drone footage has gone viral on social media.

Dramatic images of lava bubbling and spewing into a volcano have resurfaced on the internet and are gaining popularity. The clip was originally captured by a drone after Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall volcano began erupting in a series of dramatic explosions in March 2021. The volcano went off after 781 years of dormancy and continued over the course of six months. Red eruptions were seen flying out of the black pyramid and several locals went close to the volcano to take photos.

Among them was Bjorn Steinbekk, a drone photographer. He told News week that the footage was filmed in late April 2021 when the chemicals in the lava created a silvery texture on the lava and crater.

The video shows lava layers bubbling up from the earth and from the mouth of the Fagradalsfjall volcano. The subsequent frames make the lava change color – from bright orange to silver and gray. Then the volcano erupts and finally the bubble bursts, everything is replaced by red-hot lava.

The video captured by Mr Steinbekk had gone viral last year, but he shared more in March 2022 – a year after the eruption – saying the footage had not been released before.

The eruption occurred just 40 kilometers from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, and painted the sky crimson as streams of red lava spewed from the ground.

Known as the land of fire and ice, Iceland is the largest and most active volcanic area in Europe, according to AFP news agency, home to one-third of the lava that has flowed on Earth since the Middle Ages.
