Drone Captures Rare Eruption as It Soars Over Iceland's Fagradalsfjall Volcano

An Icelandic photographer captured drone footage of lava flowing from the Fagradalsfjall volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula on March 20.

Bjorn Steinbekk Kristjánsson recorded this footage while flying his drone up the river of lava to the crater of the volcano.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office said the eruption was small and had followed an uptick in seismic activity in the region.

The Department for Civil Protection said it did not believe the activity posed any threat to structures or settlements in the area. Credit: Bjorn Steinbekk Kristjánsson via Storyful
