Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano erupts under Northern Lights

As if the eruption of Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano wasn’t dramatic enough as it is, new footage has emerged which shows lava bubbling and boiling and shooting into the sky as the Northern Lights swirl above.

The fissure eruption at Iceland’s active volcano is captured at close range by a helicopter which is flying perilously close to the crater.

The first part of the video is a time-lapse animation of the aurora borealis, often referred to as the Northern Lights, swirling above the volcano.
