Kilauea volcano. Active vents in the Halemaumau pit crater in Kilauea volcano. Kilauea is the most studied and one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Located on Big Island, Hawaii, this volcano has been in a state of almost continual eruption for centuries and has produced a near- constant stream of lava since 1983. The lava flows downhill to the sea, where it cools and solidifies into rock, adding to the island. Like the other islands in Hawaii, Big Island is formed entirely from hundreds of thousands of years of lava flows. In Hawaiian mythology, Halemaumau is the home of the volcano goddess Pele. Photographed in Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii, USA.
