A new webcam is providing dramatic live images of the Eyjafjallajökull/Fimmvörðuhálsi eruption, particularly after dark. The images below were captured between 20:55 and 21:00 GMT this evening, when the fire fountains seemed to be particularly vigorous.
The webcam is provided by Icelandic telecommunications company Míla, and can be found at this link: Eyjafjallajökull frá Fimmvörðuhálsi. Also available from Míla, the Eyjafjallajökull frá Þórólfsfelli webcam (which is situated further from the seat of the eruption).
UPDATE. The Fimmvörðuhálsi camera has broken down. Oh well, no doubt they will get it fixed in due course.
