Kīlauea Volcano — Telephoto Views, Halema‘uma‘u Activity (Jan 6, 2021) – lanikai-beach


Telephoto video of lava flow and fountaining in ‘uma‘u lava lake; spatter bursts from the active west fissure vent in Halema‘uma‘u.

Clip 1: The lava lake in ‘uma‘u Crater is being fed by sources from the western fissure today, the tubed over lava stream entering the lava lake at the margin (initiated yesterday) and the small dome fountain (maximum height 5 meters or 16 ft).

Clip 2: The southwest vent of the western fissure is producing periodic spatter bursts that have built the up to nearly the height of the previously active cone to the right. In this video, spatter that has built up at the top of the cone collapses, widening the opening.
