Kilauea Barbeque

This is a very good video of the entire process, and I believe it is updated on a regular basis.

News Alert - Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Eruption Revealed Big Crater, Scientist Rush In To Study




However, this video is like almost every video and article about the Big Island, concerning its volcanoes.  Everybody keeps talking about Hawai'i's five volcanoes.  That is false, because there are SIX, not five volcanoes that make up the Big Island.  The very first volcano making up the island of Hawai'i is Māhukona.  It is the oldest, yet most recently discovered volcano of the island, because it is not above sea level.  It is the foundation on which the rest of the volcanoes have built the island as the Pacific Plate has moved in a northwesterly direction.

This entire process is just so deadly, and tragic, yet so mesmerizing, all at the same time.  Its one of the most beautifully destructive things I have ever seen.  And I just can't stop watching the lava shooting upward, and then sliding in red hot rivers as it makes it way to the ocean, reducing everything in its path.  And yet it is creating anew, at the same time.

There is nothing in the Volcán del Fuego of Guatemala, or any other composite volcano, that draws my undivided attention. They are all both ugly and brutal, all at the same time. But this Fissure 8 eruption is an entirely different woman altogether.

Great words of advice from someone who has met the monster, and still holds true to his convictions. This should be in every inspirational presentation as the classic example of wisdom.

I want to show you all something interesting, which I have noticed for two or three days now.  Up until just recently the lava flow into Kapoho Bay has been a pretty uniform entry.  But as the ocean depth has increased, several of the lava tubes have begun running under water.  And in some cases, they are extending outward quite a bit, leaving the slower, across the board ocean entry behind.  If you go to this report, you can see today's USGS map for the 15th of June.

But pay close attention at the 1:57 point, and you can see the volcano tubes moving underwater and spilling out beyond the shore line.  You can also trace back to the entry and tell where the lava is coming from.

There is so much lava erupting out of Fissure 8, and arriving at Kapoho Bay, that it is forging ahead of the ocean front.  Amazing!
