volcanic erruption - The Big Picture has some great pictures of the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland [click on the wikipedia link if you want to know how to pronounce it].

As you probably have heard, air traffic throughout much of northern europe has been grounded because of the danger of flying through the volcanic dust resulting from the eruption. When this volcano erupted in the 1820's, it erupted for most of a year.
