The continuous "curtain of fire" has been already building elongated steep-sided ridges due to piling up hot, juvenile and plastic lava fragments around the fissure, so-called spatter ramparts.
The RÚV launched another live streaming showing the better, full-size fissure view where a new spatter cone is being observed that has formed above the vent.
The first estimated lava flow rate is about 20-50 m3/second.
