Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano (named after the neighboring glacier of Eyjafjallajokull) is erupting for the second time in one month. It has melted so much ice from the glacier that flood waters have forced hundreds of people to evacuate nearby villages. The ash plume has canceled thousands of flights in and out of the Great Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia. As you'd expect, night photographers couldn't be more excited.

The Boston Globe's The Big Picture has more spectacular photographs of the volcano and the resulting damage.
