Northern Lights over an Erupting Volcano
In April 2010, the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull spewed great ash clouds into the sky and caused enormous disruptions to air travel in Europe. The eruptions are best remembered for this inconvenience, but photographer James Appleton managed to capture the event in a different way.

They were envisioned as the ghosts of those who were not buried properly and considered to be vengeful toward the living and might possess people if they did not respect certain taboos, such as the prohibition against eating ox meat. They were thought to cause disease and inspire criminal behaviour in the living, but could sometimes be appeased by funeral repasts or libations. The edimmu were also thought to be completely or nearly incorporeal, i.e. “wind” spirits that sucked the life out of the susceptible and the sleeping (most commonly the young).
