A drone has captured spectacular views of a volcanic eruption in south-western Iceland, giving incredible close-up views of the top of the volcano as it erupted.
- The volcano had been dormant for 6,000 years
- The glow from the lava could reportedly be seen from the outskirts of Icelands capital
- The eruption followed thousands of small earthquakes in the area in recent weeks
The footage, which was posted on Instagram and Facebook by travel blogger Bjorn Steinbekk, has already been viewed over 400,000 times.
