New Video of Volcanic Eruption in Iceland

Inspired by Sean Stiegmeier’s moving slideshow of the volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Icelandic volcano enthusiast Tómas Haarde made a similar video using screenshots from Míla’s webcam.

“I wrote a program that took a screen capture from the webcam every few seconds and I turned those screen caps into a video,” Haarde wrote on YouTube, explaining that he had then decided to add music by Wagner for a dramatic effect.

This footage was shot on May 15.
