Different Volcano, Same Problem- Ash cloud delays flights in Europe.

The NASA Terra Satellite passed over Iceland and grabbed this shot today, ( in true colour) showing the ash cloud from an erupting Iceland volcano. Click the image for a much higher res. view.

The UK Met Office has just released a new ash advisory, and airlines have canceled flights into Scotland for Tuesday. I’m headed to Manchester UK myself on Thursday, so I’ll be watching this closely. The latest advisory shows some ash below 20,000 feet over central England, and Ireland by Wednesday.
