I was surprised to clearly see a volcanic plume resembling a white convective cloud sitting above the active fissure eruption of Holuhraun 4 Sept 2014, associated with the nearby Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland. Air traffic control reported it actively erupting to the north of the giant Vatnajokull Glacier and Grimsvotn Volcano which closed European Airspace back in 2011. This particular eruption today, which is monitored continuously and very closely, had no significance to high-altitude passing airline traffic.
