Talk about something spooky…look at the image taken from high above the crater caused by the Icelandic volcano eruption. Some people have compared the image to that of a famous painting, “The Scream” by Edvard Munch.
Meanwhile, a radar image of the volcanic crater appears to show a nightmarish face, which is reminscent of Edvard Munch’s painting ‘The Scream.’ Coincidentally, it is thought that the masterpiece was inspired by the blood red skies caused by the powerful volcanic eruption of Krakatoa in 1883.
In his diary Mr Munch wrote: ‘I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.’
The picture was taken by the ELTA radar from an Icelandic Coast Guard airplane.
Eyjafjallajökull is a stratovolcano composed of alternating layers of ash, lava, and rocks ejected by earlier eruptions. This volcano rises to a height of 5,466ft above sea level. It began erupting for the first time in 190 years on March 20, 2010.
The eruption opened a 2,000ft fissure, and also produced lava fountains that built several hills of bubble-filled lava rocks, called scoria, along the vent.
Experts fear that the current eruption could trigger a much larger explosion of nearby Mount Katla.
Katla is described as ‘enormously powerful’, and because it lies under a glacier its eruption would cause a huge glacial outburst flood and could spread its shadow over a much larger area.
Could this be a sign from God to warn us of something bad happening in the very near future? I know some of you may believe in the Mayan end times revelation of the 2012 prophecy, so do you think this image is just a pure coincidence? What about the numerous massive earthquakes we have been experiencing lately? What about the ominously strange weather patterns lately?
What does everyone think?
