Meanwhile, another video on Twitter gives us a closer look on the volcanic eruption’s “spectacular and mesmerizing sight.”
Located in Geldingadalur, Iceland, Mount Fagradalsfjall is erupting for the first time in nearly 800 years. Thousands of earthquakes have been recorded in February and earlier this month, leading to the actual eruption on March 19, reports said.
Mount Fagradalsfjall’s name is taken from the Icelandic words fagur, dalur, and fjall which literally translate to “beautiful valley mountain.”
