The length of the image is probably not representative of its
true length.

The length of the image is more likely a result of the motion of
the bright light and the exposure time of the camera: the light
moved while the "shutter" was open (i.e., during the exposure
time of a single frame of the video) creating an elongated image
of the object+motion.

It could have been as long as it is wide, like a sphere (or
square) and make an image such as shown.

If we knew the exposure time and the time between frames
(generally very short), focal length, pixel size, distance to
the top of the volcano, etc. we could get a size estimate... if
its on the level!
