A very rare combination of Aurora Borealis and volcanic eruption. The image was taken during the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland. The volcano would later cause the worldwide desruption of air traffic, when it started to produce hige quantities of ash that travelled as far as northern Africa.
