Here's the latest specs on the eruption from Icelandic Met Office:
1st September 2014 19:00 - from geoscientist on duty
Since midnight over 700 earthquakes have been detected automatically which is somewhat fewer than in the past few days. The main activity is in the dyke. Two earthquakes occurred by the northern rim of the Bardarbunga caldera, at 08:58 AM M5.0 and 11:41 AM M5.3. Over 140 earthquakes were detected by Herðubreiðartögl, NE of Askja volcano. A few earthquakes were detected near Askja.
And now for today's best shots (so far):
This image was capped during Iceland's sunrise, and after a very wild night, the eruption appeared to be diminishing.
Later in the early afternoon, steam and ash began to thicken.
Still later, the steam and ash turned darker.
By sunset, the ash cloud became a dark mass lit by glowing lava below.
And this is the most recent image at 6pm CST; the lava appears to be more focused in one area tonight.
