    Lava eruption at Kilauea spews ‘Pele’s hair’ volcanic glass into Hawaii’s skies

    According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the United States Geological Survey, Kilauea volcano is erupting, causing lava and filamentous volcanic glass known as Pele’s hair to flow into Hawaii’s skies.

    The eruption began around 3:20 pm local Hawaii time on Wednesday (September 29) when the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory detected a glow from a webcam at the summit of Kilauea. Its brilliance indicated that a lava eruption was occurring at the Halemaumau crater (a much larger Kilauea caldera, or a pit crater surrounded by the crater).
