Piton de la Fournaise

I saw a very exciting facebook status update from my friend Julia yesterday
the active volcano on my little island is erupting!
So I had to investigate the matter further, the volcano in question is Piton de la Fournaise (peak of the furnace) on the island Reunion in the Indian Ocean. It a shield volcano and one of the most active in the world. The current eruption technically started last November and has a VEI 1, so it's on a pretty minor scale. The volcano does seem to be more a tourist attraction than a danger to humans, which is good and everyone seems to be safe which again is good.

Also its very very pretty.
