volcano creates stunning sunsets over Britain

5 posts in this topic

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.

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:
