New Piton de la Fournaise eruption

The island of La Reunion (here's how to pronounce it) hosts one of the world's most active volcanoes, Piton de la Fournaise.  And to draw more attention to itself, as if it needed more attention after a presumed piece of the missing flight MH370 washed up on its shores, the volcano started erupting today (or yesterday, depending on the position of the terminator).

Lava fountains never get old.  The article below, though in French, has a nice picture and an impressive, though short, video.
