Eruption and lava flow of the Kilauea volcano on the island of Hawaii. Red hot lava spouts from a vent and feeds a lava flow. Kilauea volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, with many eruptions and flowing lava lakes that stir and boil for years at a time. The majority of its eruptions are non-explosive outpourings of fluid lavas, as seen here. Effusive eruptions such as these are safe to study at close range, and Kilauea is the most well studied volcano in the world. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has been situated on Kilauea since 1912.
