This video shows a drone's night-time flyover of a volcano eruption site in Iceland. Fagradalsfjall volcano on Iceland's Reyknanes Peninsula began its much-anticipated eruption on March 19th 2021. It marked the first eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula in over 800 years. Vilius Petrikas was able to capture history in the making on camera flying his drone over the site. The footage shows the main volcanic cone and the surrounding smaller cones erupting as well as a closed valley surrounded by mountains slowly filling with Lava. Vilius, 30, from Reykjavik, Iceland said: "I got an opportunity to visit the eruption site. I took it as I have never witnessed an eruption before. "Once the eruption came into view, I was speechless. ''It's very hard to describe how it looked and felt in person, as the power was overwhelming. "I'm still in disbelieve to what I saw, and can't wait to get back there to feel the energy of our powerful nature." "I'd like people to see the beauty of our planet, how alive it truly is. ''If I could add something corny, I'd say that I'd like people to find respect for our planet."
