The eruption of fine ash and sulphur dioxide launched into the atmosphere by Iceland's volcano produced some spectacular sunsets across Britain last night. Now we can also look out for a real-life blue moon... and some very dirty cars.

As the volcanic clouds are carried a large distance by high winds, the sulphur dioxide will react with the atmosphere to form 'sulfate aerosols', say scientists.

Perfectly clear blue sky at the moment, not a single plane or vapour trail. I don't think I've ever seen it so clean :)

How long do they expect this thing to continue affecting the U.K.?

Unknown, but apparently the last time it erupted (in about 1821) it went on for 2 years :/

The only way in or out of the country at the moment is by ship, or if you happen to have access to a small private plane which can fly at low altitude. Or the tunnel if you want to go through France, but they are grounded as well.

Theres a link to the current status here: http://news.bbc.co.u.../uk/8627545.stm

If this goes on for another two weeks then we in Britain will be having to pay more for oranges and certain other fruits than we do for petrol :w00t:
