Lots of action in the summit lava lake at Kilauea on the Big Island.

Really, some pretty dramatic action over on the big island.

Don't fall in!

Spattering is common in Kilauea's summit lava lake, and is often concentrated on the south lake margin. But occasionally, as happened today, numerous spattering sites can appear in the north part of the lake. Unfortunately, northern areas of spattering can rarely be seen from the Jaggar Museum Overlook in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, especially when the lava lake level is as low as it was today.


  1. Holy crap! Just wandered over from The Burning Platform, where someone gave you a shout out in a comment, and the first post I see is about my Island! Very cool post.

    I shall lurk.

    1. Very good! Lurking is good, but so is putting in your two cents worth. Feel free to do either, as you please.
