Caption: Kilauea Volcano, Big Island, Hawaii. Molten lava bubbling in a vent on Kilauea Volcano. These mild, gas-driven explosions send shards of molten yellow and orange lava, called spatter, flying into the air. The airborne material splashes down in all directions. The burst causes rippling waves to pass through the surrounding lava.
