This image by NASA's Aqua satellite, was made only days after the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjalkjokull volcano. Ash and a plume of material from the blast are sweeping across the Atlantic Ocean and invading Europe. The wave of volcanic material impacted air travel in Iceland for more than a month and in Europe for several days.
