The Kilauea volcano in Hawaii started a new eruption on September 10th of 2023, producing numerous lava fountains along a 4100 foot long fissure. Due to the location it is occurring at, this eruption has the potential to offer the best viewing possibilities of a summit eruption of the last decade! As of 12 hours after the eruption's onset, more than a square kilometer has been covered in a layer of lava. So, is this eruption likely to migrate into a rift zone? How long will the eruption last? This video will answer these two questions, and discuss what is likely to happen next as this Hawaiian island volcano.
