Incredible up close video of Hawaii’s volcano eruption
Lava finally reaches the Pacific Ocean at Kamokuna after a seven mile journey from the Pu’u O’o vent in Kilauea Volcano. A small black sand beach is formed when the surf quenches the hot lava. Recorded March 27, 2005 More photos and videos: volcanochaser.smugmug.com Eruption Update Info: hvo.wr.usgs.gov
6 months ago, the steady eruption at Kilauea volcano on Hawaii Island changed after an incredible fissure tore the earth open on the middle east rift zone. This video first aired on Big Island Video News (bigislandvideonews.com)
Kilauea is the youngest and southeastern most volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Topographically Kilauea appears as only a bulge on the southeastern flank of Mauna Loa, and so for many years Kilauea was thought to be a mere satellite of its giant neighbor, not a separate volcano. However, research over the past few decades shows clearly that Kilauea has its own magma-plumbing system, extending to the surface from more than 60 km deep in the earth. Hawaiian Meaning The Hawaiian name “Kilauea” means “spewing” or “much spreading,” apparently in reference to the lava flows that it erupts. Eruptions have been Continuous since January 3, 1983. It is estimated that the first eruption of Kilauea has between 300000 and 600000 years ago.
Reticulite, a highly vesicular form of pumice, is so fragile it can be sliced in half with a Post-it note! Reticulite from a volcanic eruption of Kilauea is contrasted with lava flows, and with carbonated soda. It can be crushed in your bare hands, or flattened with a plastic spoon; a plastic fork goes right through it. Visit our web site at www.uhh.hawaii.edu

Targeting CH450 and specifically 6-8 Degrees South Latitude for a possible 6.9 magnitude earthquake. locations that best fit the profile for this event are : Solomon Islands, Southern Regions of Indonesia or Congo/Tanzania Northern hemisphere watch could produce a 6.5 magnitude earthquake during this watch. Areas 36-40 Degrees North Latitude that could be in play for this possible event are : Italy, Greece, Hokkaido Japan or Northern California. Radiation/Ionospheric anomaly’s indicate 20 Degrees North Latitude could receive possible seismic events. These locations are : Hawaii, Taiwan, Puerto Rico or Guatemala Excellent information websites for solar watchers and researchers solarimg.org www.solen.info www.solarmonitor.org sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov helioviewer.org Intro music used is royalty free and created by Kevin MacLeod The spinning world globe at the start of the video is a free program called Earthquake3D The use of images and voice from this video may NOT be used by another party and this video will not mirrored under any circumstances as annotations will be added to the video during each and every watch.
When lava flows from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii enter the sea, explosions abound. James Williams gets an explanation from Discovery News’ Michael Reilly.
