Volcano Action Thurs Night

The action is still developing here with Kilauea volcano. There's another significant overflow of lava out of the Halema'uma'u crater. This time it's a biggie! The lava is rising over the four meter high new walls that has been recently created, and flowing out in two opposite directions, creating river like pools. It's going well beyond what it did before. These night photos are from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. 

Below, the camera that took this shot is sitting right in the caldera rim and looking down. 

This camera is further away and that's lucky for us. We can see the two rivers of lava from this angle. 

The camera on the photo below is on the opposite side of the culdera, fairly far away. This is the view you'd get if you were here in person.
