10:05 PM · Dec 5, 2022

The primary eruptive vent on Mauna Loa continues to grow and change each day. The spatter cone around Fissure 3 is now estimated to be roughly 95ft tall, and the tallest lava fountains remain higher still. On Dec 4th, one section of the cone can be seen sagging into the eruptive vent if you watch closely on the right side of the video. This timelapse shows Nov 29 - Dec 5, USGS M5cam
