Pele’s Breath -- The Kilauea caldera on the big island of Hawaii.  During the day this simply looked like a white plume of steam… but at night the molten lava lit up the smoke with a bright crimson red.  When the wind died down you could clearly hear it bubbling and hissing.  Amazing to behold!  I stayed here for close to 2 hours, and was rewarded with the clouds clearing enough to catch the starry sky as well.  Never got to actually see the lava… so that’s still on the bucket list!

Stunning Rivers of Lava Making an Ocean of Lava

Nature is amazing: Hawaiian Lava Rivers of lava from Kilauea Volcano's Pu`u O`o Crater in Hawaii last week.

On August 3rd, 2011, the longtime erupting Pu'u O'o crater of the Kilauea Volcano collapsed.  Soon thereafter, at 2:20 p.m., lava broke out at the base of the west flank of the Pu`u `Ō `ō cone and began flowing in dramatic fashion.  This "surface flow" of lava  began moving at a rapid pace down Kīlauea’s south flank. The weaker northwest arm was pushing into the kipuka forest, while the higher volume, larger south arm of the lava flow had advanced downslope.
