Kīlauea Volcano — Fissure 8

Fissure 8 erupting with lava flowing out of it

Detailed Description

Fountains from the fissure 8 spatter cone continue to supply lava to an open channel. The spatter cone is now about 55 m (180 ft) tall at its highest point. As observed during this morning's helicopter overflight, the fountains rarely rise above the rim of the spatter cone.
