Timelapse Captures Glow Emitting From Kilauea Volcano

Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano emitted a dramatic glow overnight from May 21-22, as captured in this Gemini Observatory timelapse.

The observatory told Storyful the video shows “the glow from an extensive region of fissures over the course of a single night.”

The volcano began erupting with lava, ash and toxic gas more than three weeks ago, prompting the forced evacuation of more than 2,000 people. Credit: Gemini Observatory/AURA/NSF via Storyful
