Time-Lapses of Erupting Halemaʻumaʻu: Spatter Bursts and Lava Lake Spillway

4:20 AM · Nov 6, 2021

Two time-lapses of the Kīlauea volcano's erupting West Vent within Halemaʻumaʻu crater on the Island of Hawaiʻi, filmed within the past week on October 30 and November 4, 2021. Spatter bursts issue lava from within the vent, which lands against the inner walls of the cone and can be seen slowly dribbling back down. The spillway drops over a falls and under an archway as it plunges lava into the lake, with the hardened roof of the lava tunnel thickening after several days. A standing wave marks the entry point, with whirlpool eddies circulating to either side. The lava quickly forms a thin rock skin through which the deeper lava in the lake can be seen to glow in the night hours, turning silvery in appearance after day breaks. #Kilauea2021 #KilaueaErupts Join our special live video review of Kīlauea’s ongoing eruption at 5pm Hawaiʻi time weekly on Thursdays!
