New 1994 Footage of Kilauea Erupting… The Best I’ve Ever Seen

Molten lava mixes with seawater, producing spectacular fountains of spatter, and fascinating bubble bursts. The bubbles stretch and rapidly cool, forming Peles Hair and Limu o Pele.

Videographer: JJ. Camera with telephoto lens was set up far away to capture footage from this rare and short-lived event. Current conditions are very different; visitors & scientists must remain in government-designated areas to view lava safely…
