Looking down: The Volcano Observatory

Leave a comment

Mauna Kea isn’t the only observatory on Hawaii – there’s also the volcano observatory, where people spend their time looking down rather than up.

The Kilauea volcano has been erupting continuously since the mid-80s. At the moment the currently most active vent, Pu’u O’o is rumbling along, with its crater gradually filling with lava.

There are some great images from the Volcano Observatory that can be found here.
