A video of a volcano eruption near the Fagradalsfjall mountain in Iceland has gone viral on social media. The stunning visual was captured by a drone which was sent by a drone photographer, Bjorn Steinbekk to capture the rare scene.

The Fagradalsfjall volcano is situated around 40 kilometers west of Iceland’s capital Reykjavik. The volcano erupted on March 19 and due to the eruption the red lava spewing out of the ground and a no-fly zone was also established in the area.

According to the Iceland Meteorological Office (IMO), the eruption began at 08:45 pm GMT on March 19 after thousands of small earthquakes hit the area in a few recent weeks.
