Kilauea creates “seething fountains”

USGS Volcanoes

USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists were on the ground Wednesday morning to capture photographs of the current eruption of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii.  The volcano is confined to the summit caldera within Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.  

“Witnessing the crust of an active lava lake being dragged into seething fountains is unforgettable. While an eruption is an exciting experience, keep in mind you are observing a sacred event,” the National Park Service said.
