Kilauea Volcano Update

Lava Update | June 22, 2017

Beautiful overcast skies greeted us as we approached Kilauea’s east rift zone, making Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava lake glow all the more. Winds were favorable as well, so we had a great opportunity to observe the bubbling and churning pit of molten lava. 195 more words

Lava Update | May 31, 2017

Kilauea continues to erupt from the east rift zone, discharging lava from Pu‘u ‘O‘o, and feeding the ocean entry at Kamokuna. While weather delayed our approach to the vent, we were able to get a peek at the very active lava pond within Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s crater before having to quickly evacuate the area because of closing in clouds and gases. 200 more words

Lava Update | May 25, 2017

Kilauea’s eruptive activity continues on the east rift zone, and although we were not able to fly over Pu‘u ‘O‘o crater because of low overhanging cloud cover, it continues to feed lava to breakouts on the upper flow field and Pulama Pali, and also the Kamokuna ocean entry. 189 more words
