Pools of Lava Created: Hot Video

Vala Hafstað

Pools of lava can form in an instant at the eruption site in Geldingadalur, Fagradalsfjall mountain, on the Reykjanes peninsula, Southwest Iceland, mbl.is reports. Aníta Ólöf Jónsdóttir caught such a formation on video and posted it on the Facebook page of Hekluhestar (Horses of Hekla) Wednesday. 

Hot lava flows under a crust of solidified lava, which crumbles, forming a bright red lava pool east of one of the craters. See for yourself. It is a fascinating sight.
