(Irritating) Volcano from Space

[tweetmeme only_single=false service=wp.me source=allinthegutter]

Having been stuck in the Netherlands due to the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull I’ve finally managed to escape, if only to the UK. While this was nowhere near as impressive as my Escape from Belgium during a total public transport strike it was still a bit stressful. I’ve just had a chance to check the blog and found that Emma’s post from last year on Volcanoes from Space has become quite popular. Hence I had a bit of a dig around and found that the NASA Earth Observatory has a few amazing images of the ash cloud drifting out over Europe. If you are still stuck feel free to shake your fist at the screen while looking at these.

Here’s the rather dirty stream of ash drifting over the North Atlantic on April the 15th,

And here is the ash cloud sitting over Continental Europe a day later,
