A NASA MODIS satellite image acquired at 05:00 UTC on May 22, 2011 shows the plume casting shadow to the west, from the Grimsvotn volcano, under the Vatnajokull glacier in southeast Iceland. Ash from a massive plume of smoke from an eruption of Iceland’s most active volcano could spread south to parts of Europe next week, but experts on Sunday still hoped the impact on air travel would be limited. The eruption at Grimsvotn has so far hit only Iceland, which closed its international airspace. A thick cloud of ash blocked out the daylight at towns and villages at the foot of the glacier where the volcano lies and covered cars and buildings. Picture taken May 22, 2011.
