This computer enhanced image from the German Aerospace Center shows a photo of the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland on Friday. The photo was taken by the TerraSAR-X satellite. The volcano in Iceland erupted for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting smoke and steam into the air forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters. Flights around the world have been canceled and passengers stranded as the ash cloud from the volcano affected operations at some of the world's busiest airports.
