If this thing goes VEI 6 eruption, how much would it affect the UK, France and Germany?

I captured the virtually identical image this morning, and I wondered if you had noticed the object on cam2 ( i think).
It looks grey, and when I zoom the image I captured, one can see light and dark shading in keeping with the lighting conditions, suggesting an actual aerial object.
What do you think - dirt on the cam lens??
BTW very much appreciate the quality analysis provided by thread contributors, thankyou.
Bárðarbunga subsidence - new data
Mon, 09/08/2014 - 15:30 -- rosa
Surveying of the subsidence of the Bárðarbunga caldera was done this morning from the civil avaiation aircraft TF-FMS using radar profiling. The results show that the subsidence, first detected on Friday 5 September, has reached 18,5 m, of which 2,5-3 m occurred over the last three days. The events in Bárðarbunga can be called a slow caldera collapse. At this moment the total subsidence is small compared to known caldera collapses elsewhere but it is also impossible to say how long this event will last.
Norwegian national broadcaster NRK reports that they were aware of sulfuric stench of the coast of Norway these days and runs stink eruption of lava pocket.
"Apart from the risk that the lava floods, strikes the gas after wind directions. Scientists are indicating that alerted and they have repeatedly had to retreat from the lava. "
There should therefore be no one to get involved that do not need to be there. Scientists have determined the work they progress and disappearing from the site.
Pseudo-craters formed when lava flows over waterlogged soil as is happening now when lava from a lava pocket and Jökulsá the mountains meet. Some examples of artificial crater in Iceland; including the Rauðhólar near Reykjavik, Skútustaðagígar the lake and Erosion cavity. If artificial craters formed in hollow lava eruption it will be the first time in our times that people can become witnesses.
Another caldera seen in Dyngjujökli. He directed the swarm hallway that runs from the north to the volcano Bárðarbunga methods in blowout lava. This caldera was seen in exploration geoscientists flight yesterday, and two to three kilometers from the edge of the glacier. It is unclear how big he is.
Two other boilers have shown up in the Dyngjujökli, one of ten miles from the edge of the glacier and the other about six miles inside the glacier.
The latter was evaluated for three days about thirty-five feet deep and has been deepening. It is believed the short and ephemeral eruption under the glacier has prevented these boilers have been formed.
Pictured below is the first sigketillinn seen in Dyngjujökli, about ten miles from the edge of the glacier.
Detained lava lava flow from the blowout on as far it will spread first ear blanks, but then follow Jokulsa the mountains of hardships starting over two kilometers below the confluence of the answer.
When lava comes down representations will clog it and falls Radiant probably disappear or have a view on. This is evident in geological mapping ÍSOR the eruption site. It says that uncertainty is how much lava, but it is likely that it will afflict the confluence of the answer. It will cause a short mæju reservoir ears Jökulsárgöng which will be filled by the testimony, if not immediately then the next winter season.
Shown in web analytics Eastern News that residents Hallormstadur has been devoted to the fine dust on their cars could be volcanic ash. The dust was first seen yesterday morning but it will be fine and brown.
Civil Protection Department has received information on the case but has not been confirmed that there was ash. Then know news to farmers who were Snaefell yesterday saw the color of the snow which they thought could possibly be ash.
Tremor of size 5.2 became Bárðarbunga about seven minutes after one night. The quake is one of the largest earthquake triggers this. Seismic activity is still largely confined to Bárðarbunga north end of the corridor and mountain tails as an indication the IMO.
About 30 earthquakes were detected in the metabolism of the area at night and turbulence have been stabilized. He seemed only to increase the base of the glacier Brúarjökull morning.
Tremor of size 5.4 became Bárðarbunga seven minutes past one in the night, according to data from the American Earth Sciences Centre.
Scientific American Petroleum Institute publishes information about the quake here .
The quake is one of the largest earthquake triggers this. The quake's óyfirfarinn of IMO.

Scientists working at the Holuhraun eruption side have repeatedly had to leave the area, as concentrations of gas have reached dangerous levels. Sudden changes in wind directions have made research there very hazardous. Sulfur dioxide gas has been detected in urban areas in East Iceland.
Between 10 and 20 scientists have been working at the Holuhraun eruptions site since the main fissure opened last week. The research is hazardous, says Thorbjorg Agustsdottir, Phd student in geophysics at the University of Cambridge, who has been managing a net of seismometers near the eruption. "We all have gasmasks and detectors, and we are ready at a moments notice to clear the area."
Every automobile used by scientists at Holuhraun is equipped with oxygen masks, in case anyone succumbs to dangerous levels of CO which can build up in low-lying areas. "This is the primary danger regarding gas emissions," says Agustsdottir. "We always try to place ourselves with the wind blowing towards the lava, but the wind direction can change very suddenly," she says.
One more cauldron (depression) has been seen in the Dyngjujokull outlet glacier, in line with the magma intrusion which is feeding the lava eruption in Holuhraun. The size of this cauldron has not been estimated yet. It was spotted Sunday, during a surveillance flight over the glacier.
Two other cauldrons have been seen; one of them 6 kilometres from the margin of Dyngjujökull, the other 10 kilometers from the margin. All three are in line with the dike intrusion in the bedrock beneath the glacier.
They are thought to have formed due to small, shortlived subglacial eruptions; so small that no increased meltwater has been detected in outlet rivers, such as the Jokulsa a Fjollum glacial river.
