Alien Invasion?

This is a actually a picture of the Eyjafjallajokull (trying say that three times fast) volcano in Iceland, in the midst of a "dirty thunderstorm".

According to MSNBC, dirty thunderstorms are what scientists believe to be "static charges are ignited by ice particles, as well as ash and rock fragments from the volcano."

To me, it looks like a scene out of a sci-fi movie, kind of like War of the Worlds when the lightening activates the alien pods buried in the ground. I can't imagine how cool it must look like in person!
