Sometimes we forget that Hawaii's Kilauea is in constant eruption. And the Web site may go for weeks without a new picture. But there have been some recent events, including a large bench collapse. Below are three recent picture highlights; go to the linked source for explanations.
18-20 November 2005 -- lava stream after tube breakout
30 November 2005 -- lava falls after bench collapse
2 December 2005 -- sea cliff lava vent

Very cool. Would you add me to your ping list?
Last one looks like the flow is sticking out it's tongue at us.
Kinda like that old Rolling Stones logo, eh?
Thanks for posting those. Pictures are pretty neat.
Could you please add me to your ping list? Thanks, cool pics!
I'm going to reveal my age here, but when I was a little kid I used to *love* watching 3-2-1-Contact on PBS. They ran lots of the Kilauea footage shot by the Krafts. I loved watching the rivers and waterfalls of red-orange. It was so enchanting - it seemed almost alive. An indellible images from my yout.
Thanks for the pics!
