Another fissure has opened up following a further burst of earthquakes
The satellite pic nicely shows an earlier eruption 'delta', complete with lava flow - not sure if that was from one of the relatively recent eruptions or a much older one? (Think that was also shown in a GeologyHub video on Youtube - usually interesting watches even if the chap doing them sounds more than a little monotonal/robotic!)
On the Icelandic side of things and still no lava from the current eruption site although increased earthquake activity certainly suggests lava is on the move and may break out over the next couple of weeks. In some ways the current location was pretty perfect as it was close enough to the road that setting up cams and allowing public access was easy but with enough valleys to contain the lava flow without it causing any damage to infrastructure. Whether a new site would be so conveniently located is debateable, with it being much more likely to cause damage to roads if nothing else.
No guarantees the lava will make it so the surface of course, be interesting to see what happens
