The volcano in Iceland awakens after 6,000 years



Recently, a long dormant volcano on Reykjanes peninsula in southwestern Iceland burst into life, attracting thousands of tourists.

The footage originally posted on the Icelandic Meteorological Office Facebook page shows it to be a small eruption with two lines of lava running in opposite directions.  The light from the lava can be seen from the outskirts of the Icelandic capital Reykjavík, about 32 kilometers (20 miles) away.

Fagradals Mountain volcano has been inactive for 6,000 years and Reykjanes peninsula has not had a single volcano erupting for 781 years.

After forbidding people from coming near the volcano when it first erupted, the authorities decided to let visitors come.  Thousands of people flocked to watch the volcano erupt.  

A rare natural phenomenon has become a tourist magnet for the Reykjavik peninsula.
