A stunning new time-lapse video from the Gemini Observatory captures the dramatic glow of the Kilauea volcano eruption on Hawaii's Big Island.
The Kilauea outburst began on May 3, 2018, following an earthquake that struck the Big Island. Since then, the volcano has continued to spew lava, ash and toxic gas, destroying homes and causing people to evacuate.
The recent footage was taken during the night of May 21 to May 22, using the Gemini Observatorys Gemini North telescope. The wide-angle camera at the Gemini North telescope sits high up on Mauna Kea, a tall volcanic peak on the Big Island, and is pointed in the direction of Kilauea.

Yup. Nature is indeed putting on a show here on the Big Island.

The plant typically generates 25 percent of the electricity for Hawaii island.
