Drone footage of collapsing Icelandic volcano crater is simply amazing

Stunning drone footage going viral shows a large chunk of the volcanic Fagradalsfjall crater collapsing in Iceland. The clip is also amazing that it’s cold in the back.

The video, originally captured from a drone by Hörður Kristleifsson, was shared on Twitter by Good News Correspondent.

The images were shot on the mountain volcano Fagradalsfjall, located about 40 km from the Icelandic capital Reykjavik. The drone was flying over the volcanic crater when part of its edge collapsed.

The Fagradalsfjall volcano erupted earlier this year in March and left people stunned.

“Icelandic photographer Hörður Kristleifsson was flying his drone over the volcanic crater Fagradalsfjall when part of the crater rim collapsed. “This part may seem ‘small’, but it’s actually about the same size as a 5-story building! »Read the caption.

Since its sharing, the video has garnered over 8,000 views and tons of reactions. People have called the phenomenon magical and mind-blowing.

Icelandic volcano Fagradalsfjall has not spat lava since September 18, when it became the country’s longest eruption in 50 years, but scientists say it is too early to cancel the eruption.

Lava began to flow from a crack in the ground on the evening of March 19 on the Reykjanes Peninsula southwest of Reykjavik, a sight that quickly became a major tourist attraction.
