Eyjafjallajokull eruption, satellite image. North is at top. Ash plume (brown, upper centre, many hundreds of kilometres long) from the April 2010 Eyjafjallajokull eruption being blown towards Europe. This volcano erupted below the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland (outlined beneath the clouds at upper left) on 14 April, sending ash high into the atmosphere. This led to closure of the airspace over the UK and other northern European countries. Image data obtained on 15 April 2010, by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on NASA's Terra satellite, part of the Earth Observing System (EOS).
