The eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland began March 20, 2010. The eruption has casued a 1-km long rift in the ice cap. Lava fountains are spouting high into the air and flowing away on the ice surface. Go to the Eruptions blog for a report and a video. Subscribe to that blog if you are interested in updates.

Yeah, yeah, I know this isn’t Mount Baker, but very cool for volcano watchers anyway.
