Caption: Kilauea lava flow entering the sea. The molten rock boils the seawater on contact, producing clouds of steam. Kilaeua, on the island of Hawaii, USA, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and has been in constant eruption since 1983. In that time, lava flowing into the Pacific Ocean has formed more than two square kilometres of new land on the island. Kilauea is a low shield volcano, rising only 1247 metres above sea level. The Moon is rising at upper left.
